My rescue cats, Cherry and Luna, aren’t just pets, they’re a part of the family. I love how they have very different personalities. Luna is frisky and playful and Cherry (pictured) is basically a stuffed animal come to life! I may be biased, but I think cats are the best pets. What’s not so great? The litter box. They look unattractive in a room and it’s even worse if you can smell them! Today I teamed up with Fresh Step® Clean Paws™ Multi-Cat Scented Litter with the power of Febreze™ to share this Litter Box Cover DIY and show you how to banish odor for good!
Fresh Step® Clean Paws™ is a low tracking litter which means it helps keep paws and your home clean. The special design of larger particles sticks less to cat’s fur and it keeps the litter where it belongs, in the box. No more cleaning up litter paw prints multiple times a day!
This best way to disguise a litter box is with a cute, litter box cover. This Litter Box Cover DIY is the perfect solution for small areas where the litter box is out in the open. Best of all? It can be made with scrap wood! I made this litter box cover with scrap wood I had lying around the garage. Total cost? $0!
Supplies for Litter Box Cover DIY:
2 inch screws
Paint (I used spray paint, but any paint will do)
Cut the following pieces of wood:
Front piece: 15 X 19 inches (1/2 inch thick wood)
Top Piece: 16 X 19 inches (1/2 inch thick wood)
Legs: 6 total, 2 X 19 inches (1 inch thick)
Brace: 3 total, 2 X 19 inches (1 inch thick)
Side panels: 4 total 2 X 19 inches (1/8- 1/4 inch thick)
Screw the side legs to the sides of the top piece.
Screw the braces in between the legs on both sides.
I spray painting the frame in steps so I could easily reach all areas.
Then, screw the side plants on, 2 inches from the top and 2 inches from the bottom. Do this on both sides.
Screw the front board to the frame at the top and the bottom.
Draw the cat face on. I used a salad plate to trace a circle and then drew the ears on free hand.
Drill a few holes into the wood so your jigsaw blade can fit in the hole. Cut out the cat face.
Sand any rough edges.
Paint the rest of the litter box cover.
Fresh Step® Clean Paws™ has the odor-fighting protection of Febreze™ which is perfect for multi-cat households (like mine!). It eliminates odor for up to 10 days and my house smells fresher and cleaner than it does when I use other litter brands.
