Heavy cloth or canvas in the pattern of your choice (available at fabric stores).
Screwdriver or other tools needed to remove cabinet door
Self Adhesive Velcro
Needle and thread
Sewing Machine or Fabric glue to hem the curtain
Step 1. Clean out a cabinet to use as your new kitty bathroom. We used the one under our bathroom sink.
Step 2. Remove one of the cabinet doors carefully by unscrewing the hinges. If you are renting , be sure to store the cabinet door in a safe place so you can replace it when you move out!
Step 3. Make the curtain. (This design was inspired by a Japanese curtain we have hanging in our apartment). My mother-in-law sewed it for us since we don't have a sewing machine, but you could use fabric glue like I did for my beach tote.
3a. Measure the width and length of the opening after the cabinet has been removed. Include the thickness of the baseboard at the bottom since you will want to hide this as well. Cut a piece of fabric that is about 4 inches plus the width by about 4 inches plus the length in size.
3b. Cut the piece of fabric in half along the length to make two panels.
3c. Hem each panel. Create a half inch hem along the sides and bottom and a one inch thick hem at the top.
3d. Stitch about 6 inches of the two panels together at the top of the curtain.
Step 4. Apply velcro across the 1 inch hem at the top of curtain on the inside. Leave about a quarter of an inch margin to the edge of the curtain. Important Note!!! Make sure you do not damage the paint with the adhesive. The velcro we used initially was so strong it ripped right off the cabinet when we went to remove the curtain, taking the paint with it! Use weaker velcro or nail the velcro to the cabinet (you can fill in the holes when you move out).
Step 5. Apply a mating strip of velcro across the top of the opening of the cabinet. The width of the velcro should be about 1/2 inch less wide than the curtain.
Step 6. Attach your curtain. You now have a removable (and washable) curtain to hide your cat's litterbox!
Ok, so it doesn't exactly blend in with the cabinet doors, but it does hide the litter box and allow the cats to walk in and out. To make the litter box more inconspicuous, choose a fabric color that matches your cabinets or teach your cats to open cabinet doors! :)
