Upcycled Chair Parts into Cat Cave

Are you ready for round 2? If you’re new to what I’m talking about, take a peek at my first post about these broken chairs over HERE. Now, for today’s fun I’m finishing up what I originally began. These upcycled chair parts are destined for so much more. Let’s have some more DIY fun!

While this may look like a pile of hot mess-ness, don’t be too quick to judge, k? I see wooden seats, solid oak legs and rails. In my first chair take-down, I cut off the backs and made salvaged spring decor.

DIY TIME

This time around, I making use of the pieces left. First, I’m using the rest of the backs, the bottom legs. After flipping them around figuring out their best use, I then decide to cut off the dowel pins with my coping saw.

Then, after assembling a few cut chair pieces, I came up with this…

Well…what is it? Before I give away my wicked upcycling scheme, I also make use of the seats. I cut the seat bases to fit both ends, and then cut up the foam seat cushion to make a different sort of cushion.

THE REVEAL

Finally, after a bit more of building, sewing adventure, I’m finished.

Were you thinking a DIY cat cave? tee hee! I couldn’t un-see it, so there it is. And…I had to put it to the test. Now, in all fairness, Lily (our diva calico cat) is more of an outdoor cat as she came from a barn. Likewise, she claims our house as her castle. Finally, here she is with her first impression. She marks it.

And then…takes a peek. Silly cat. Apparently, she wasn’t super impressed. However, I will say she did more than I thought she would.
