Elegant DIY Dog Bowl

Several weeks ago I saw an elegant footed dog water bowl  on Pinterest and followed the link to Frontgate.com. Those bowls were no longer available but they had some similar starting at $39.95!! Way to rich for our blood! While we love our dogs, I'm not going to spend that, plus shipping on a water bowl. But, of course, I knew that I could probably make something similar. A quick trip to Walmart and for less than $10, Lizzie and Annie now have an elegant water bowl.

The total cost was less than $10 and it looks so much better on our patio than the old sun bleached one, don't you think?

Lizzie sure loves it!

Not only is it elegant, but it is also elevated which is much better for our girls anyway! Small dogs are prone to bone and joint strain and an elevated bowl can improve their posture and help reduce the strain.

I just love it when I can take a great idea and make it for so much less! Especially something that looks so elegant and is so useful.

Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!

  1. Hope you don't mind, but I am sooo coping this idea! And I guess it will be good for dog, too, because his water will be on higher level. This idea is great!

  7. I love the idea, but I'm having a hard time finding the right pot for the 10 inch bowl I already have, doesn't help in particular as crap. Wanted black or neutral color to go with everything. N needs to be like 10.5 inches across top to fit bowl.
