Then I decided I needed a new mat as well and after doing a search for a pet food mat on google I found this funky fish shaped mat here for a hefty price of $35.00 and remembered I had a small piece of blue vinyl I picked up at a second hand store that would be just perfect. So I sketched out a fish on newspaper and used repositionable adhesive to hold it onto my vinyl well I cut my shape out.
So anywhere here is what I ended up with, I'll start with the before
|not to pretty his food was stored in an old cat litter container, and the mat is not super pretty|
|I like this much better. I think the colors are all okay together they're all in the blue/green family so I don't think they look weird together|
|I was originally just going to do a square of chalkboard paint on the front of the tin but after cutting out the mat I decided I wanted to do a fish to tie things together.|
|I love how this turned out, vinyl is so nice to work with you don't have to hem it and it can be easily wiped clean|
|Well the mat is Dante approved|
