Vintage Trunk Litter Box, or No?

Vintage Trunk Litter Box, or No?

Q: So, I've been searching for a stylish solution for housing our cat's litter box and integrating it into the living spaces of our small house. After quite a bit of internet research, I decided to convert an old steamer trunk into a litter cabinet. I spent another couple weeks Craigslisting, and I finally discovered this one.

It was a steal, it's kind of awesome, and I'm feeling a bit brilliant for having found a way to make the litter box a design plus instead of an eyesore.

On the other hand, now that I have the trunk, I don't know if I actually have the heart to cut a hole in it for my cat's entrance and egress. I don't believe it's valuable, but it certainly is old, and the sentimentalist in me is now rebelling a bit against the idea. Should I stick with my original plan and go through with converting this trunk, or am I going back to square one in finding a litter box solution?
