by dog feeder i mean those boxes to elevate a larger dogs food and water bowl. i'd like to make one where the food is stored in the box and the bowls fit into the lid through cut outs. but i am at a total loss for what to use as the box ( besided just building a box). i'd love to reuse something rather than just buy it. any ideas- looking for something creative so get your thinking caps on! thanks for the help ahead of time!

How about a rubber-made type storage container? Of course, you could only recycle if you already have one. But, it would be sturdy, and waterproof... and you can paint it in any way your heart desires!

For the actual bowls, they have sturdy stainless steel ones at the Dollar Tree (eveythin $1 store). So you would only spend $2...

So, not really THAT crafty, but hope that helped some.

thanks for the reply. i am a complete newbie and think it is awesome that people actually take the time to respond to others 'crafting' challanges.

Ok, here is a "rubbermade" trash can that was painted, ummm... I think the poic is gone, but it tells what kind of paint she used.

And somewhere on here is a Sterelite 3-drawer cart that was painted and decopaged, but I can't find it  Undecided

But, yeah, paint sticks, and so does Mod Podge  Grin
