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
