Cat Chaise  

DSC_0781We've been wanting to get some patio furniture for a while, but the sticker shock was giving us pause. We finally mail-ordered some.

Of course, it came in some enormous cardboard boxes, which provided us with plenty of construction material for a project that we've been wanting to do since we saw it here.

DSC_0751The rationale here is that cats like anything cardboard, so what better material to use for luxury cat furniture? The Kid started sitting on it before we even got started. 

 

Here's the base, with some additional bracing underneath. The Kid has gained more than a few pounds since her refugee days, so she needs something sturdy.

The dogs had to get in on the action as well. This is the top, also cut from one big piece of cardboard.

She loves it! She's hardly left the chaise since we set it up in the living room. It's a little bigger than it needs to be - I guess we overestimated The Kid's size when we laid out the design. And that's saying something.
The Kid's favorite old bath mat just happens to fit in there.
