Ever since I remodeled my mudroom and laundry room, the litter box has been tucked away behind my washer and dryer. You can't see it from the entrance to the room, but you can from every other angle. UGH. I've been searching for a cheap and easy solution for a while but only this past week did I come up with something that works beautifully!
This is where the litter box used to be kept:
But then I put in a window and turned that space under the counter into bunk beds for the cats:
The litter box moved to this space (where the stool is)
and the cats proceeded to flick litter every which way. Plus there was litter dust on EVERYTHING!
I decided to give up the lower hanging rack and move the litter into the corner. Then I hung a shelf on brackets at counter height. I put in an inexpensive Ikea desk lamp to light up this dark corner.
I put an upside down plastic shoe box for my older cat to use as a stepstool into the litter box.
Then I dressed up the area above the counter with an Ikea set of galvanized pots and rack that I picked up at a yard sale last year. I painted the galvanized pots with chalk paint and used Mod Podge to glue some flower seed packet printables to them. If you want to see my collection of printables, click HERE
