Materials: IKEA Stolmen storage system (post and fixtures)
Description: Here is our version of the “Stolmen” cat tree. We were inspired by pictures we saw on this website. We bought the post and fixtures and built our own shelves to reduce the cost. We gave the shelves the shape we wanted and painted them in white.
We made a hole for the post and fixed the carpet in place with little nails. We wanted our cats to get more vertical space and we thought that in front of the window was the best place for them. They can look outside higher than ever! We love the clean lines of this tree, we still get plenty of light even if it’s right in front of the window. It is really well integrated in our decor which was important for us since it’s in our living room.
