Now that the floating shelves are up and effectively cover all the unattractive necessities on that wall (doorbell box and thermostat) it is time to figure out what to do with the space underneath them. It’s an odd little space that I’ve never quite known how to handle. With the shelves in place for a few weeks, they have helped me start to get a better of idea of what I want to do and it involves adding a small cabinet that includes built in dog food bowls.
Our dog’s bowls have been moved no less than three times since we’ve moved into this house, so I think it would be nice to give them a permanent home while making them less noticeable/more attractive at the same time.
The cabinet will have to be on the smaller side like twenty four inches wide at the most and somewhat narrow to fit in line with the pony wall, so I’ve been doing some searching to see what options are out there.
I like this all in one cabinet, but the price tag might be a little too rich for my blood.
I like this one too. Definitely a DIY option, but I’m not sure I would ever have the drawer closed and it would most likely get in the way.
This is cool. You can stash the dog food underneath the bowls. I could probably build on of these pretty easily.
Definitely like this idea. A smaller console table modified to fit her dog food bowls would be great.
I like the distressed look of this one and it stashes the food underneath too. Built tall enough you may not even notice that it’s a dog bowl holder from a distance. Makes me wish I had more wall space.
Would love to find a small dresser that could be re-worked like this one. But I don’t often see dressers narrow enough to fit in the space I have available. Could DIY one, but would so prefer to find something already built that could be modified.
And, my last find looks like the perfect fit for my space. It’s tall and narrow and almost looks built in. That would be a nice look. Maybe I could find a used base kitchen cabinet??
