When your pup eats, does his water and food swish over the bowls, making a messy disaster? If so, then this doggie food storage center is for you! Keeping your dog’s bowls raised off the floor and food stored underneath is a much more effective way to keep everything clean and organized.



  1. Find a crate that fits both bowls across the top and a storage container inside of it.
  2. Measure the wood for the lid. Make sure that there is an extra inch that hangs off of each side.
  3. Trace the bottom of the bowls onto the crate with a pencil. Cut out the circles using a jigsaw.
  4. Stain the crate, paint the lid, and allow both to dry. Cut out printable paw prints, trace with a pencil, and paint onto crate.
  5. Mark where the utility hinges will be on the crate and lid. Drill holes, and screw the hinges into place. For additional support, install a lid support hinge.
  6. Place the plastic storage container inside the crate.
  7. Place metal food bowls into the cut out holes on the top of crate.
