Whatcha Workin' On Wednesday

My niece Ellen over at http://itsagoldenslife.blogspot.com/ is always saying "Why didn't you take a pic and blog about it?" I always forget! So this time I remembered....here you go Ellen.

So, here is what I used to put the cat food in.....not very prim, I know. Not very attractive either.


Then I went to Goodwill. I saw this and thought I could somehow make this work! I only paid 6.00 for it, which I thought was a good price.

And this is what I came up with......black, it covers a multitude of sins! Oh, and I flipped the lid over because the "pet vittles" just wasn't my thing!


Corner of the kitchen before....


Corner of the kitchen after....


And of course kitty,(aka Betsy), had to have a nibble in the middle of my picture taking! Lol!


Oh yea, here's a picture of some boxes I covered in some fall fabric I had.


Here's another pic.



So, other than some dishwashing and laundry doing.....and I'm sure you don't wanna see a pic of my husbands underwear! That's about it! Hope you all have a wonderfully blessed day!

I really like your pet food holder. Is that an old potato box? I need to try and find one. I hate the ugly bag of dog food in the kitchen!

Another person who finds great things at Good Will. Carolyn at Cranberry Crossings is always finding the neatest things. The one near here never has anything good.
You did a great job on it!

Wonderful! I love it :) I have my dog food in the same container but it's under the sink. No where to display it.

I don't believe I have been here before...have I? I do see that you sent me an award...man, I am behind and lost lately. I can't seem to keep up with all the new commenters and the new bloggers. I am so sorry! Maybe I am just really confused, too...who knows? I will be back :) I came here after you posted your quote for me. I guess without all of the stress and "pressure" we wouldn't be where we are. Life wouldn't be fun if it were easy all of the time, right? :) Thanks for that!

Well all I can say is Way To Go with re-creating! Great job on the kitty nibbles container!
At first I thought the rug in front of the chair was a Penny Rug till I clicked on it and saw it was food bowls...cute idea.
