Inspired by various other hacks that I've seen on the internet, my very own kitty litter cabinet.




Here is the before:


And inside:

Now there's just her litter box and scoop inside:

We no longer have all the stuff on top, so I think it looks a little nicer.  Smiley


This cupboard was once part of a set that I had worked on earlier.  I redid the bookshelf and posted about it here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=274263.msg3100134#msg3100134

Thanks!  It was actually amazingly easy.  We were going to try to cut a hole out on the side, and weren't really sure how to approach it (all the other ones that I've seen did that).

Then, it occurred to me that the side is decently solid, but the paneling in one of the doors was coming loose....

The most time consuming part was getting the little staples out after the panels were removed.  The door panels came off easily, as did the middle shelf.  One of the few times were cheaply made furniture was a benefit. Cheesy 


Now, if I can only make my cat stop "spraying" on the carpet, I'll be much happier....

That is a great idea. I have three cats so we have two boxes so we'd need a big cupboard.

I like it!  Good idea!  Are you going to paint this one like the bookshelf?  (bc the bookshelf looked great!)

Thanks for all the kind replies!

And no, I don't plan on painting it.  My lovely cat has decided to pee on the floor lately, so we've been taking her litter box out most days.   Angry

This is great, really high quality! I'm pondering how I am going to keep my cat litter from being flicked everywhere, so the tray needs enclosing but there is no way I can build anything like this...

It was super easy, I just popped out the inserts in the cupboard door and put in new ones.  I could have even kept the old ones and cut them down, but the pieces I had fit perfectly without any work needed.  Smiley  Easier to do with a cheap cupboard than a nice one, certainly!
