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!

    I have this idea saved in one of my many "to do" folders, but the person I saved it from did not line the inside with kitchen floor tiles. That's brilliant Brooke! We have a potty room under the basement stairway, but I also keep a small litter box in the bathroom off my drawing room for when the kitties are on the second floor. Someday I'll make one lined like yours and place it in the walk in closet. Thanks for sharing!

    Love this idea. I just hate seeing the box. Will have to start looking.

    Great idea and I am now officially on the lookout for an old toy box of some sort!
