This time we're updating an old cat tree, which no one loved, and we're calling it...


The Best Cat Tree Makeover in the World!

We don't know about mew, but we think that most cat trees are sooooo horrendously bland and boring with zero purrsonality. 

So when we were planning this project we decided that if we're doing a makeover, WE'RE DOING A MAKEOVER if mew get our drift. There's no point in getting some faux fur and redoing it the same, what would be the fun in that. Besides mew guys know what we're like by now, and if we can't make it look epically epic then we're not going to do it.

What We Used:

An old cat tree that still has some life in it but looks a little sorry for itself

Funky fabric, we chose a selection of rather ditzy kitsch fabric in fun patterns

Trim, we used some small pom pom trim in 3 different colours

Glue gun + extra glue sticks

Staple gun + extra staples

Gorilla tape and self-adhesive rubber grommets

needle and thread

Today we're doing things a little bit differently again; instead of step-by-step instructions, we're sharing a video of the entire process... so get a lovely beverage, sit back, relax and just press play!

If for any reason the video doesn't play go here to: watch direct on YouTube

If there are any parts of the process mew'd like to know more about, ask us in the comments.

Pandora loves her new princess cat tree in the catservatory, although Smooch did manage to try it out before it even made it into the catservatory, and then Melvyn and Fudge both tried it out while she was outside!

Everyone loves it, in fact we think it's one of the best things we've ever done! MOL

What do mew think to it? 

We have a much larger cat tree that we're planning to do next, let us know in the comments what colour mew think we should do the next one.

If mew'd like to see our previous Valentine's crafting posts, here's the list:
