Have I ever shared that I love to decorate just about every area in my home? Since we just finished painting the dining room our cat Stinkerbelle's food station needed some love too. So, here is a post breaking down the things you will need to create a pet bar station idea like the one for our fur baby.Remember my paint project in the dining room? You know the post called Paint a Room like a Professional? Well, it's the reason for a new space for Stinker. I have to warn you that this pet bar station idea is a work in progress. Then why am I showing you now, you ask? Because I couldn't resist featuring Stinkerbelle's new Rae Dunn bowls. Aren't they adorable! Okay, so where do we begin?

BASE OR TRAYStart with the bottom and move your way up. For Stinkerbelle's pet bar station idea, I decided to use an old piece of aged wood, but you can use a cutting board, tray, piece of marble, place mat, and the list goes on. But the main thing is to use something that is safe and will keep their bowls from moving all around. And if you want it to coordinate with your decor, look for a style and color that fits right in. Just remember to think outside the box and be creative. The options are endless.
FOOD STORAGE CONTAINERThe second main item is the food storage container. I have future plans of finding a tin container, but for now, I decided to spray paint my current plastic piece. Painting it turned out great and it gave it the clean look I was hoping for. You may be able to fit the storage container on the tray with everything else, or it can sit next to the tray.

RAE DUNN BOWLSThese Rae Dunn bowls are the main reason for sharing this post with you. Other than the super cute, fun text, I really like the finish on the bowls. It is smooth like silk, and they clean up easily. So far Stinkerbelle likes them too! Look for some bowls that fit the decor of your home if you like for everything to match. If not, then go for whatever makes you smile and is safe for your kitty.
MASON JAR TREAT STORAGEAll animals need a treat when they're behavior is good. Having a place to store their treats is important. Since I love the farmhouse look, a simple mason jar did the trick! These treats now have a pretty home right by her super cute Rae Dunn bowls, and the mason jar adds some stylish decor to the space. GET THE LOOK:

And eat all the food in the bowl while I was trying to take some good photos of her. And then decide to take a nap since her belly is full and napping is what cat's do best. Haha!
