Many of you know that my husband and I are constantly working on our house. Its been one project after another, the most recent, turning a little strip of grass in front of our property after the sidewalk line, into something pretty.
A sprinkler system was installed on that side of the sidewalk, but all that was in there was an infestation of weeds and anthills. Over the summer, we dug up every inch of that thing and made it into something pretty. Of course now all the plants have died off but it was pretty this summer.
The next project we started working on was our downstairs bathroom. It first started with a good paint job. Now I love love color when it comes to my home. My upstairs family room is painted a lovely apricot color. My kitchen is a leafy green color and my kids play room is a bright vibrant green, but I’ve seen a trend where gray is the new black! Why? Because its easier to change your decor and add pops of color with gray….see example here:
I absolutely love this and that you can change out pillow covers or vases and its like you have a whole new room.
So I decided on a nice gray color for our downstairs bathroom and I love it. We still need to add crown molding to complete the look. The bathroom also needs a medicine cabinet. I seriously don’t know how the people who had the house before us functioned without a medicine cabinet.
Our bathroom also has a closet which is great for towels and its deep so we store extra bedding in it.
Now we have a cat, actually two. If you’ve been following awhile then you know we just acquired a kitten. Until now we’ve kept the litter box in the garage and the cat just goes through the doggy door to use the litter box because there was no appropriate place to put a litter box inside. With the addition of the kitten, I wanted to move the litter box inside. I didn’t want the kitten finding a place to hide or get into in the garage or get run over by one of our vehicles, so we needed to bring the litter box inside.
I decided that part of the downstairs bathroom make-over would be adding a cat door at the bottom of the bathroom closet for the litter box.
My husband cut the whole in the door and inserted this cheap $20 cat door from Home Depot in less than a half hour. Now our guests don’t have to smell the litter box or see it.
The cats have had no problem using it either. We had to teach the kitten to go through the door, but it’s so much better than having the cat box out where you can smell its contents. It makes my bathroom look so much better!
We also installed this little motion detector light just on the side of the wall inside the closet that turns on when the cat goes through the cat door. The little light only cost 8 bucks and is battery operated from Amazon.
So if you are looking to hide your cat’s litter box, consider doing something like this, it’s not very expensive.
