DIY: Cardboard Cat Chaise

The smarty pants over at Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories have a great tutorial on how to make your own Cardboard Cat Chaise. How nice of them to share.  Cardboard seems like a magnet for our cats, but those cardboard cat lounges you see in stores cost a pretty penny.  While not as fancy, this DIY chaise is a practically free and you can upcycle cardboard you already have.  Evil Mad has a pattern you can print out that includes an optional brace to make the chaise stronger. The post are good instructions and lots of photos.

You’ll need:

  • a hot glue gun
  • something to write with
  • a utility knife will probably work best, but you could use scissors or an X-Acto knife
  • some large pieces of cardboard

  1. To whom this may concern,

    My ICT controlled assessment (coursework) concerns planning
    an upcycling event. An aspect of this is to create a profile
    of potential upcycling demos. I was very interested by the
    “DIYCardboard Cat Chaise” and have decided to put forward
    the idea as one of my three demos.

    However, a image will be necessary so i am asking your
    permission to use the picture of the finished product.

    I would appreciate this very much as it is for my coursework
    so i would not be using it for commercial purposes (I am not
    planning and actual event that will go ahead but this is
    simply for GCSE use)

    Thankyou very much.

    Yours faithfully,

    Simran Brookes
