I LOVE this idea! Not sure exactly what you mean by using the "entrance" from the box. - Can you please explain? I think I fond the folding storage bench you're talking about at JC Penny's on line...the Cooper Folding Double Ottoman. What are the dimensions of yours? http://www.jcpenney.com/jcp/X6.aspx?GrpTyp=PRD&ItemID=1a31980&deptid=71371&SO=0&Ne=4294957900+5+1545&NOffset=0&catid=78794&N=4294938448&Nao=0&PSO=0&bcCat=4&CmCatId=EXTERNAL|78794 Thanks for any input.

It's around 16" tall by 30" long and the width is around 15". I used the entrance of the old regular cat litter box (like a plastic archway) to fit inside the hole I cut out. Hope that helps! I have to say I don't have any issue with trailing cat litter as the cat walks across a small mat before getting out. Nobody even knows it's a litter box and I don't have the eyesore of my old litter box in the bathroom anymore!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Clever DIYer Elisa Proctor solved the litter box problem herself for about 40 bucks. "I was sick of seeing the regular-type cat litter box in my very small bathroom in my apartment ... plus litter everywhere ... so I started thinking outside the box ... so to speak," she writes. When she found this bench ottoman for under $40, the wheels started spinning.

I was sick of seeing the regular type cat litter box in my very small bathroom in my apartment..plus litter everywhere! I totally love the moderncat litter box but at $180 just wasn't feasible so I started thinking outside the box..so to speak! I wanted something with a lid and found at canadian tire a foldable bench/ottoman for $40! I used a knife to cut a hole on the side and used the "entrance" from the original box.

Add to Ideabook Elisa Proctor - $40.00 » She cut a side entrance with a knife, lined the inside with plastic and added a litter box. Voilà! It's a stealth cat commode.

I wanted something with a lid and found at canadian tire a foldable bench/ottoman for $40! I used a knife to cut a hole on the side and used the "entrance" from the original box. Inside I lined it with plastic and put in the litter box and a mat to trap the litter. Now it just look like a bench in my hallway!
