Why buy an expensive cat tree from the store when you can easily build one for a song? Why, you can use old drawers to make your DIY cat tree! It’s simple, fast, easy and clever!
There are plenty of old drawers out there – from your local thrift stores, garage sales or even just from the streets! You can get as many as you want to make your cat tower as tall as you want, without having to spend a lot. You can also use other reclaimed materials such as table legs to save even more. ;)
But aside from being an inexpensive cat tree idea, we like that it is also very unique for everyone. There is no specific step-by-step process, no single set of measurements, no particular finished product. You can build it however you want and finish it according to your aesthetic preference!
