Yesterday, we shared a handful of lovely little DIYs for your favorite furry friend. Today, Spoonflower crew member, Meredith, visits the blog to share a full how-to on how she created a custom dog feeding station for her newly adopted companion, Alligator! Read on as she walks you through step-by-step to create your own version.
At the beginning of the year, I became a proud parent of the sweetest four legged friend (though I may be biased), named Alligator. With her adoption quickly approaching, I couldn’t wait to get started on projects for the pup using Spoonflower. An Eco Canvas dog bed, a Cotton Poplin bandana…the projects were quite endless, but I knew not everything had to use fabric.
After a few weeks of having Alligator at home, I wanted to take her dining experience to the next level with an upcycled dog feeding station! After all, no ‘gator should be eating off the floor! With a bit of thrift shop hunting, power tool prowess, and the help of Spoonflower’s Woven Wallpaper, this ‘gator was dining in style! Follow along as I turn a regular storage cabinet into the Gator Grill!
