Our dog is a special part of our family. The kids love her to pieces, and she loves us unconditionally in return!

Because her feeding essentials are fixtures in the common areas in our home, I like to make them look as pretty as possible. She's pampered, playful and a very high energy dog! We've tried everything; small cute wooden feeding stations, bowls with rubber tread - you name it,  we've tried it! They're adorable and aesthetically pleasing however, she has a tendency to knock them as a result of her enthusiasm for meal time.

Ever since she was a puppy, her routine at feeding time has been the same. She's takes off running, slides across the floor, and does a crash-landing of sorts right in front of her bowl. As soon as she hears the food hit the bowl, she simply can't contain herself! While it's cute to watch, it can get pretty messy. As such, I had been on the hunt for a cute feeding station, that also had some weight to it.

Most of the heavier versions are comprised of plastic, which works well, but they certainly aren't fun to look at. So, I decided to buy one and give it a simple shabby chic makeover with Mod Podge Hard Coat and some cute fabric. I absolutely love how it turned out! It's a simple and cute solution for enthusiastic pups!

What you'll need:
  • Sponge Brush
  • Scissors
  • Fabric (we used about 1/2 Yard on our feeding station-measure according to the size of your feeding station)
  • Mod Podge Hard Coat
  • Plastic Feeding Station
How To:
  1. Cut your fabric to size. I covered the perimeter of the feeding station only; leaving the entire area where the bowls are inserted as-is (for cleaning purposes).
  2. Coat the entire surface perimeter of the feeding station with a thin coat of Mod Podge using your sponge brush.
  3. Smooth the fabric onto the entire surface perimeter of the feeding station.
  4. Apply a thin coat of Mod Podge over the surface of the fabric. 
  5. Allow adequate time for drying. Apply 2 additional thin coats to the surface coating the fabric covered area completely  (allow adequate time for drying between coats).
  6. Insert the bowls into the finished feeding station and fill with your dogs favorite food & water!
We filled our new feeding station with Kibbles 'n Bits®. We recently made the switch and our dog really seems to be enjoying it! They offer a ton of great flavor options that she loves, and I love that it's packed with antioxidants and 23 essential vitamins and minerals! It's easy on our family budget as well!
