Are you looking or an easy project to make a window seat for cats ? This project is for you.
I don't remember where I got this cabinet. It was either $5.00 at the Habitat for Humanity Restore, or a curb find. If you look closely in the background, you will see some giant bun feet. If you have ever looked at one of the major home stores for bun feet, you know how expensive they can be.
However, if you keep an eye out for curb couches, it's easy peasy to jump out of your vehicle, and quickly unscrew the 4 feet off of a couch! I've done it more than once! Here you can see that I have attached the bun feet. If you remember this dresser turned into a bench, and use your imagination . . . you can tell that the top to this project was originally part of that dresser. The top fit perfectly side to side, but I did have to cut some off of the back because it was too deep.
I love the way it turned out. I originally intended it to be a bench, but the gigantic bun feet make it sit to high.
This is Matthew Dillon taking a nap last winter. Underneath that fleece blanket is a heating pad! I do spoil my kittos! I won't show you the inside of the cabinet, but I do make great use of the space. It holds my computer/printer/office supplies.
A great repurpose furniture project, if I must say so myself!
