DIY Pet Feeding Station

DIY Pet Feeding Station

I know this may seem like a silly project, but there is a really good reason for it. We have this crazy cat named Gizmo that LOVES water. Yes, our cat loves water and one of his favorite things to do is to knock the water dish around the kitchen and get all wet. This little game of his D R I V E S me C R A Z Y!!! So I had to do something to fix it. Yes, I could have just gone to the store to get a heavier dish, but what fun would that be? I had left over wood and paint so it just made perfect sense to make a little table for his dish to try and fix the problem.

We have a dog too and he shares the water dish with Gizmo. They love each other so it works out great.

I had an idea of what I wanted in my head, but first I took the two pieces of Plywood we had in the garage and the pet dishes to measure out the size I would need.

After marking the size, I cut and glued the two pieces together.

Next I measured the container for the food I planned to store below the table, then gathered I all the random left over 2x4s I had and cut  them based on the size of my food container.

Next I cut two more pieces of 2×4 to attach the legs and give extra support to the table top.

Once I had the extra support pieces cut to the right size based on the table top, I attached them  to the legs.

The legs and support pieces then were attached to the top.

I then added some door molding to create the edge that would keep Gizmo from moving the bowl around the kitchen.

Time to sand and paint!

WHAT???? Yep, his is already trying to knock it around and I’m STANDING RIGHT HERE!

I decided that I loved the end results too much to let him damage it by getting it wet every day, so I added some nails to keep the dish from moving around. HA! try it now Gizmo!!!

Now, it was time to work on the food containers that would go below the table. This solved my second problem! My son kept saying he needed help getting the food from the top of the fridge, so by storing it below the dish table there would be no reason for him NOT to feed his pets on his own. For this project I just used some ribbons, empty pretzel containers and some Scrapbooking chip board tags.

I painted the chip board tags with some white craft paint and made a dotted edge with a marker, tied some jute rope, added a button accent and attached it with hot glue.
