1. 4 Floor cat Sisal cat tree with Ikea Lack tables



To DIY this 4 floor sisal cat tree you need:
1) 3 Ikea Lack side tables  $13.99 * 3 = $ 41.97
2) 12 corner brackets, 24 screws(amazon link)
3) A screwdriver (amazon link)
4) Twine for cat tree (I used Sisal rope:amazon link)
5) Ikea Mat Bathroom


Procedure:
Overlap and secure 3 tables of 4, using brackets chair and screws.
Use the 4th tray table to make the base of the tree.
After that, wrap the Sisal twine around the feet of the table. You can attach it with glue, tacks or just as I did: making nodes (easier in case you want to remove and replace it).
I use the mat bathroom to make the tree more comfortable. I cut it in half, I put the bias with my sewing machine so that it doesn’t fray.

2. FAKTUM kitty loo


You need :FAKTUM Wall cabinet, Applåd white door, BESTÅ Push opener, litter box, cat flap, self adhesive vinyl roll.
Procedure:
1. We assembled the FAKTUM frame and used a jigsaw to cut out the access hole for the cat flap, following the template included with the cat flap.
2. The FAKTUM frame has holes on the top and bottom shelf, and since we positioned the cabinet on its side, these were clearly visible and ugly. My husband covered both sides with white self adhesive vinyl, and he also used it to cover the inside of the cabinet, so that litter wouldn’t fall in the holes.
3. We fixed a BESTA push opener to the cabinet, to make opening the door easier. We also screwed a hook to leave the litter scoop in the kitty loo.
4. We bought a narrow litter box, and placed a plastic ribbed mat between the litter tray and the cat flap, to avoid spillage of litter on the floor. We also put some bicarbonate of soda in a small container inside the cabinet, to help absorb nasty smells.
6. Access to clean the box is easy by simply opening the cabinet door.

3. Basket Wall Cat Bed


Basket Bed: Pick up an IKEA woven basket, screw it into the wall and add a cushion for a stylish piece of kitty wall art. or you can just put on the grand, you cat will love it !

9. Black and white Stolmen Cat Tree


Materials: IKEA Stolmen storage system (post and fixtures)
Description: Here is our version of the “Stolmen” cat tree. We were inspired by pictures we saw on this website. We bought the post and fixtures and built our own shelves to reduce the cost. We gave the shelves the shape we wanted and painted them in white.

This combination cat bed/scratching post, by The Deviant Housewife, makes use of an EXPEDIT wall shelf. It looks pretty popular.

11. DIY kitty litter box cover



Hiding the litter box is especially problematic in a small apartment. Brandy from Bella Pop came up with a great solution: an IKEA STUVA box, with a hole cut in the back for a kitty entrance. The front opens up so Brandy can scoop, and when the doors are closed the whole thing just looks like an end table.


Kitty door cut to size with jigsaw (before installing the back cover!) Don’t have a jigsaw?  Find a friend who does!

12. Shelf Perch


If your kitty is a tree-dweller, they’ll love having their own shelf where they can judge you from above. If you don’t have room for (or don’t like the look of) a giant cat tower, just mount some IKEA shelves and add carpet so they don’t slip off.
