Just look at that chippy finish and forget that I wanted lime green. I settled for metallic orange - because of the 999 little bottles of craft paint I own, I have no lime green. 998 shades of blue - yes.
I probably should have used blue since it's an appetite suppressant, and based on the amount of scooping Brawn needs to do in the yard, my dog could use some appetite suppressing. (It was in our wedding vows that I don't do doo).
|*DISCLAIMER: There are no plants on my porch, this photo is last summer. I still have Reindeer on it.|
Off came the houses, and I painted a coat of ASCP in old white. I was less than impressed picturing dog food drool all over the white. So I painted on metallic orange, used steel wool to sand it back off, and finished it with a coat of dark wax.
The holes are a perfect fit for the stainless steel dog dishes that Mo eats out of.
But I took his stainless steel dishes out for these photos and inserted our white cereal bowls.
Why did I do that? There is nothing wrong with stainless steel dog dishes.
So to recap;
my dog has dog dishes....these are Corell cereal bowls....he does not eat out of these.... we do.
Mo was sort of mad at me, this project didn't turn out at all like I described it to him.
I told him I had to take his picture because he should be in the post.
|These are his bedroom eyes. Is it working Amy, is Riley going crazy?|
