Fur Baby Water Station

Abby likes very looooong walks. On hot days I worry she might need a drink so I carry water for us. Luckily one of our local businesses has a dog drink station. That’s where I got this idea. We live at a beach community on a road that has many dog walkers. I think their fur babies will like and appreciate this trash to treasure project.

Abby is in charge of this project.

I started with a plate charger that I picked up at a yard sale. It’s been sitting in my stash for quite some time. I cut a piece of scrap wood into four legs.

Making the stand.
Glue legs

E6000 is my all time favorite glue. I used glue to easily add legs.

Gathering other supplies

You can always find really cheap bowls at thrift shops. That’s where I found this nice heavyweight bowl. Of course just about any bowl or dog dish will work. The other piece was a roadside rescue. It came from a broken white rocker. I only needed to wash it up. No need to paint!

Nice Matters
Lettering and set up

Our tourist town’s logo is “Nice Matters”. I used my silhouette machine to design and cut out the vinyl lettering. This was such an easy project. Next I simply had to set everything up on the side of the road. I used a concrete paver for the base.

Added flowers

I added flowers to each side to give this project more curb side appeal.

Memorial Day
Had to remove the legs.

We had several days of heavy rainfall. The legs did not hold up very well so I removed them and placed the charger plate directly on the paver. This actually works better for shorter and smaller puppies! I added the flags for Memorial Day weekend. I think I’m going to leave the flags up all summer long. Let me know if you have any questions. I hope this inspires your creative juices!
