Repurposed Dog Bowl Wall Art

After I painted the kitchen, I started putting artwork back on the walls for my family’s enjoyment. One family member didn’t have anything to look at when he was eating his dinner.

What about me? *Sigh*

I decided to make Blitzkrieg some doggie wall art.

I bought a picture frame at Goodwill.

I sanded it and painted it with red craft paint. I bought an oval mat at the dollar store and painted it with some leftover wall paint (Twisted Knot) so the mat would stand out from the white background of the object I wanted to frame. I put a piece of leftover scrapbook paper behind my object for for a little interest too.

My frame didn’t have a wall hanger so I used two Picture Hanging Strips. I had these leftover from hanging framed posters in my laundry room. The package said to use one hanging strip on small photos but I used two as overkill because Blitzkrieg can be an exuberant eater. I didn’t want him to accidentally knock the photo off the wall while he was digging into a meal. The hanging strips themselves aren't a green product but using what you already have on hand is so I got it halfway right. Besides I like the way these little Velcro hanging strips work.

Woof wall art!

I hung the photo above the raised dog feeder I made Blitzkrieg from a shadow box picture frame and napkin ring holders.

Or should I call it wall ARfT?

I like the framed sticker. It looks purposeful which makes it look more whimsical. Or crazy. What do you think?

A woman after my own heart. This is very cute... Love the red and the raised feeder is PRECIOUS! I totally understand about "exuberant eaters" as I have 4... 3 of whom are 55+lbs each.

Not since I put up some bunny pictures for my late rabbit to enjoy have I seen someone who spoils their dog as much as you. Thank god my dog is not spoiled!

Blitzkrieg, you are one lucky dog! You have a nice feeder, and now, a wall art solely for your entertainment.

Love that you did something for your dog...so cute!! Mine doesn't take longer than about 30 seconds to consume his food, so I don't know that he'd appreciate it as much...but I probably would!

Great job!

Cass @ That Old House said...

Very cute and creative. Love the raised "table," too.

But I think my dog inhales his food so quickly he'd never notice if there was something hanging over his bowl. The other day he choked, he ate so fast!

I admit it, Arwen has a piece of Japanese art right over her bed. My husband was like, "You hung that for the DOG?"

I like the Woof! Very cute.

This makes me want to go home and make a picture for my kitties to look at while eating! :) I will have to make a cute saying for them with my 'new' Cricut! Thank you for the idea!
