Here is a before photo of the box
This is the kitty house after a crafty day
I decided to follow this Martha Stewart cardboard cat house pattern to get started with the base.
I used little pieces of cardboard for the scalloped roof.
hot glued the pieces to the roof.
painted with some leftover sample paint called 'black forest'.
cut out windows and added shutters.
Kitty can enter from the side doorway or backside.
then I totally dorked out and added flower boxes & shutters.
At first kitty hated the house, but now he tolerates it. Only because his food bowl is inside now, safe from the dog. If I can get a good pic, I'll update this post.
Updated to add a photo with kitty:
