I still needed holes in the top of the feeder for the dog bowls. But this time instead of paint I opted for vinyl that I cut and wrapped around the top of the unit. This way it is easy to clean and that disgusting paint won't chip away!
I added a shelf under the bowls so that in case water drips down it won't get to any of the contents of the feeder.
I added doors to the front of the cabinet to hide everything and make it look a little nicer :)I wanted the feeder to serve multiple purposes though. I really wanted to put their food under the bowls, but they are large dogs. Large dogs eat. A lot! And I have gone thru about 6 different food containers and like the one that I have so that wasn't going to work.
I settled on having a cupboard under the bowls so that I could store all of the leashes, collars, brushes, medicines, etc. Man, I think they might have as much stuff as a kid! Oh wait.....they kind of act like kids sometimes as well so I guess that kind of fits!!
I am SO much happier with the way this feeder looks compared to the other ones!!
