First I want to point out that my inspiration for this project came from this post here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=291147.0 - Thank you very much!

I went to a resale store where leftover construction stuff is sold for cheap and I got this double cabinet and a piece of counter top for $50. The counter top is too big (as you can see), but being lazy and not very construction savvy, I just left it and I use the overhang for storage of food, litter, an carrying cases for kitties. Inside there is 2 large litter pans and a hole was cut out of the back for easy access. The hole that you can see in the front at the bottom was already there - part of the reason it was in that store to begin with. I am thinking of making a little "skirt" or something to hide it, but I'm not sure if that would just collect more cat hair and look bad or not.

And the picture!


I don't know why the thumbnail isn't working. I couldn't use Craftster photo hosting because it's not letting me upload anything at the moment. I'll try it again a little later on.
Nevermind! Fixed it.

If you really want to hide the hole, there is a really easy solution.  At your local big box hardware store (I would suggest Lowes, as I it is hit or miss with Home Depot), they sell pre-cut toe boards for the front of cabinets.  I say pre-cut in that they are the exact correct height as standard cabinets; you will need to cut it for length. You will need at very least some paint, a saw of some sort, and contact cement, but I would also suggest some small nails, as the section is hard to get to to cement it into place.  Then you just measure, cut, paint, and install!  It's pretty simple, and it has saved us tons when we were redoing our kitchen cabinets.

you could put a beaded fringe all the way across the bottom. with Velcro to hold in in place then if the cats tare it up you could replace it easier.

Thanks RuneAriala and Strawberryh for the suggestions on hiding the hole in the front. I'll have to check out those options in terms of a cost and stuff, but I think something will work to cover it. Smiley

Im happy to see that I'm not the only one with a kitty feeding station Cheesy lol
I upcycled mine from an old sewing desk (its a little taller, thus a "little" harder for the dogs to reach) , I will have to get pics up soon.
