DIY Pet Storage Cart on Wheels


I am super excited to team up with CedarSafe to create another project with cedar. Last year I created a cedar closet for pet supplies. Since I sold that home my rental has no space and I needed a place for all my pet supplies. So I create a diy pet storage cart on wheels. What’s great about this DIY its made from cedar planks, it smells amazing and it can be pushed anywhere around the kitchen.



  • Plywood
  • Cedar planks
  • 2×2 6 feet long
  • Caster wheels
  • Wood Screws
  • Miter Saw
  • Scissors
  • Wood Glue
  • Screw driver

Measurements for Cutting

  • 1 1/2″ plywood @ 34″ x 18″
  • 4 – 2 by 2 @ 16 inches
  • cedar planks 18 inches
  • cedar fence pickets 35 inches

Step 1:

My miter saw does not cut wide pieces of plywood and I don’t own a power saw yet, so I went to my  HomeDepot and the sweet people there cut the plywood and (2 by 2’s ). Most of supplies were purchased at HomeDepot.



Step 2:

I drilled a hole and attached all the 2 by 2’s to each edge of the plywood. You will need a helper to hold the leg while drilling a small hole in each 2 by 2 for the screw. I coated all the screws with wood glue. This makes it stronger. Take a Philips head and tighten all the screws.


Step 3:

Take the cedar planks and measure all the different lengths with a pencil. Take the plank and insert in miter saw to cut.


Step 4:

Drill a small hole for screw. Attach the cedar planks with 1/2 inch screw. Two screws at each end of plank. Repeat this on all sides.


Step 5:

Attach caster wheels on all 4 edges of the base. Use a 1/2 inch screw.



We are so excited for our pet storage cart. The cart is movable! It can be wheeled anywhere in the house. The caster wheels are soft and don’t scratch the wood. The most amazing part of this cedar cart is the sweet smell of the cedar wood. Cedar wood aroma is perfect for dog items such as dog collars, leads plus any other pet food supplies that get dirty or smelly. It is the perfect cat food storage and dog food holder as well.



The cart is pretty big and can store multiple leashes, blankets,  extra dog treats, cat, dog food and cat litter.


If you end up making one for your pet or household items send me pictures or a link. Love to see it. For more information about cedar check out CedarSafe. For more cedar projects check out my pet cedar closet.

  1. Wow. This cedar plank cart turned out great. I love the smell of cedar and could see this cart used in so many ways. Great inspiration. Pinning!

    1. Yes, you can use it for other things for sure, when we move I plan to use it on my mudd room.

  2. Love this pet idea. Looks so nice in your home.

  3. This is such a great idea, our dogs toys have a way of ending up all over the house!

    1. Julie, wish I had more time to find photograph more ways but time is precious! Thanks for your love!

  4. Love this storage cart idea for our pets’ supplies, Maria! I’ll have to make one of these when we get our next house. Can’t get enough storage, for sure. I like that you could use this for storing anything, really. Even blankets near the fireplace for wrapping up on cold evenings. And cedar smells so wonderful… <3 Happily pinning.

    1. Yes you can use it for many other things! In my new home I have lots of storage space so hopefully I will have room for this!

  5. This is such a great project Maria and I need one of them for all of the stuff my 3 doggies have!!

    1. It can be used for many other things too! Hopefully in the new home I have room for it! its kind of ironic the rental I need it for my pets but the new home hopefully there is wall space.

  6. Maria this is such a clever idea. I have all sorts of stuff for my pup and didn’t know where to put it. He chews everything in site so, for now, I have a basket on the floor. I guess he knows not to chew that. The things we do for our fur babies!

    1. Thanks Mary! This project was a bit involved but not that hard. They are worth it!
