Hideaway Cat Litter Box

I'd finally had enough of the "sweep/vacuum/repeat" cycle with my two cats and their litter box in the bathroom. With a piece I scooped up from a thrift store, I created a hideaway litter box. It's not perfect, and took quite some time to plan out but my cats are using it and I'm no longer cleaning up the floor after them each day!
Update December 24:
Hello everyone! Thank you for all of the kind comments, and suggestions! I've updated with another picture to clarify: there is still a litter pan inside the chest which I clean every other day. There is no odor so long as the girls cover their business, and I change the litter completely once a month. They still kick litter around the opening, but I put a rug outside the box and can easily sweep it up. Compared to the previous routine of mess in the bathroom and litter in the tub, I highly recommend it as an alternative!
We're going on several months here, and no spraying or accidents outside the litter pan. Anyone who comes to visit has no idea what is inside, which was the main goal! Good luck with your own projects!
Time: 6 Hours Cost: $40 Difficulty: Easy

    I'll be looking for a chest at garage sales or the thrift store.

    Thanks for the update. My cats are old and have trouble getting through the cat door to go to the litter boxes on the back porch. I now have 1 inside and litter is all over the place. I like this idea

    This is a great idea. I did something very similar. But!,,,, I had a kitty with a chronic respiratory disorder and it had to be open. Just saying. 😊 😊 Otherwise it is a great idea!

    I made one for my bedroom, using a large deck storage box. Looks great and the cats love it.
