Reader Tip: Turn Salvaged Drawers Into a Cat Tree

Reader Tip: Turn Salvaged Drawers Into a Cat Tree

Last summer, we happened upon an abandoned dresser on the sidewalk near our apartment. We thought to ourselves -- if only we were clever enough to see some potential in it, to turn it into something else.

Turning it into a cat tree? Never crossed our minds.

But re-nest reader Ellen in Chicago is way more resourceful than us!

She turned some old desk drawers and tree bits into a serious cat tree/sculpture. She gets compliments on it all the time ... and we're fairly certain the cats like it too.

Thanks to Ellen for the idea and great photos!
