Summer Renovations Update #2

Instead of tossing our scraps from our Kitchen Renovation Part 1 and Kitchen Renovation Part 2 Mr. Taylor got pretty crafty with a much needed dog feeder / dog food storage box. Having a small house and hating clutter (horrible combination) I naturally grew sick and tired of tripping over bowls and looking at our cheap clear storage container full … Continue reading Dog Feeder
