Drill two holes on each side of the washtub at the point where the shelf will sit. Align the shelf inside. Drive screws through the washtub into the wood, securing it in place.
3. Spot for the hook
Drill a hole in the bottom of the washtub to align with the hook. Screw the hook into place.
4. Hang the dog washing station
Drill two holes in the bottom of the washtub. Hang the dog washing station near an exterior faucet using screws driven through the holes. Drape a hose around the outside and attach to the faucet.
