Dog food storage container

Submitted to Community Café

I finally finished my dog food storage container. I was inspired by the plans over Addicted 2 DIY http://addicted2diy.com/2015/07/31/diy-dog-food-station-with-storage/ along with plans at Build Something.com

I finished the bottom using Rust-Oleum Chalked paint in Charcoal and matte clear finish. This was my first experience with this line of Rust-Oleum and it will not be my last! I love that one coat of the Chalked Charcoal was all I need do, no priming needed. The coverage was smooth and even. I am glad I read the directions because shaking the container is not recommended. The matte clear finish goes on creamy but dries clear and protects your build. Again I only used one coat.

For the top I used Rust-Oleum Varathane in Gunstock. I absolutely love the color!!! Varathane is a fast drying stain and a bit thicker than other stains I have used. The application was very easy. The coverage was smooth and even. I will be trying more colors, in fact the line even includes reds, blues and oranges. I finished with 2 coats of a satin poly I had.

The dog and cats love it. I love how it blends in with the house and keeps the food hidden.

Thank you Rust-Oleum for supplying me with the products to review. All opinions are my own.
