Sometimes it’s the little details in our homes that can make a big difference between a ‘mess’ and a ‘must.’ One little detail that every dog owner must confront is how they store their dog food safe and fresh. Some people repurpose cabinets to store pet food, while others simply keep dog food in the bulky bag it came in; but you don’t have to be stuck with an ugly shiny bag or a plain kitchen drawer. One of the easiest ways to make your dog food storage pleasant to look at—but still practical—is to use storage tins. If you’re stumped for what to do, just take a look at the following 5 painted dog food storage tin ideas!

If you want to get especially creative, consider painting letters or finding large sticker letters to label your new tin.
