In general, cat furniture (scratching posts, cat condos, cat trees, cat beds) is pretty unattractive. We know, we have the ugliest scratching post known to man.
That's why, when we came across this good-looking, DIY cat furniture project, we longed desperately to live in a loft, so that we could recreate it.
Our cats love to climb and we can't even imagine how they'd flip out for these DIY cat shelves.
Plus, they'd be so easy to assemble: Find some generously sized shelves (depending on the size and weight of your cat -- this project may or may not be a good idea) and cover them with discarded carpet samples. The designer who created the shelves pictured used 15 sample FLOR tiles.
We suppose you could recreate this project even if you didn't live in a loft, as long as you have decently high ceilings.
