Now that I'm almost completely settled into my new place, I'm doing something I've been planning on for a long time: getting a cat. I've been waiting for the right place and the right time – and here and now finally feels right. I visited a local shelter this past weekend and fell in love with not one but two lovely female cats. My adoption application is in for them and I'm hoping to bring them home with me between Christmas and New Year's. I'm so very excited. :)
The one thing I'm so very not excited about? The litter box. They're not the most aesthetically or fragrantly pleasing things, so I'm excited to try some crafty DIY options. (Here's to hoping my felines don't mind a covered box!) I'm planning on putting the litter box in my front unused room. It will serve as a mud room / entry room of sorts – with a coat tree, boot tray, and chair for sitting down to put on winter boots. However, I don't want the littler box(es) just out in the open, so I've rounded up 15 clever solutions to get my creative juices flowing.
I love the first box shown above, though I'll most definitely not have it sitting right next to the sofa.
This one's nice, too, but my teeny tiny bathroom isn't large enough to accommodate such a contraption.
I love this one. Something like this would be ideal in my entry room – for hiding and for cleaning! (And for possibly having two cats!)

This one's cute, too. And the kitty can perch on it.
I like the extra storage that this one offers above and in-between.
I'm not crazy about the twig drawer pulls, but I do dig the shabby chic look. Plus, the drawer would come in handy for storing supplies.
A bench cover would be fantastic – especially with an extra storage compartment for litter.

Again, I'm liking the bench idea.
The more I see it, the more I'm leaning toward it.
This one turned out gorgeous. What a great way to recycle old furniture.
I really like the rustic look of this one
And I love the color and simple "I can do this" concept here
Do you have a cat? What do you do with the litter box? And would you ever consider one of this nifty solutions?
