Turn this Ikea chest into a decorative litter box cover in an hour for around $60! Let’s be real, litter boxes are a bit of an eyesore. Especially if you live in a small space where you don’t have a good spot to hide a litter box away. Hang a scarf out of the chest for an added touch.

DIY Cat Teepee

These little DIY teepees would be great for your cat or small dog. The writer of this tutorial even made a smaller one for guinea pigs! After trying out quite a few different teepees, she has a few tips. Some of these tips include “Fabric that’s a little thicker, but not canvas, is good. Canvas is too thick and doesn’t wrap around the teepee nicely” and “5-stick teepees are much more stable than 4-stick teepees”.

Get your teepee on with these instructions.
