Well, we have a tiny woodstove we don't use often and a cat box that hide behind a cheap screen we bought ages ago.  My kitties like their privacy.  I had this fabric I bought at wallyworld for a dollar or two and it matches my living room perfectly, but I didn't need anymore pillows and it is too heavy right now for curtains.  Then I had a tada moment... cover the screen!  It literally took 15 minutes with a glue gun.

Before picture...


I laid the fabric on the floor and traced the outline of the screen and cut it out


Morgan and Merlot are getting curious now...

Finished!  The cats looove their new hiding spot!

Wow, that was Dollar fabric from Wal mart? It looks too nice for that. The screen looks great.

Very cute! I love the fabric, too, and it adds a pop of color as well as hiding the catbox and stove.
Cue kitties too!  Cheesy

I hope that you don't forget to take the screen away when you light a fire, because the glue may melt and ruin this beauty. I like how the flowers contrast to the green walls and fit perfectly to the curtain. Great work!

With spring finally here, we def won't be lighting anymore fires... we will have a new one by next winter.  This screen is literally falling apart but I hope it lasts awhile.
