4 panels – 32″ x 4′ Roman Vinyl Privacy Lattice Panel
Instructions for decorative dog cage cover
The table from IKEA is perfect since it has metal magnetic legs.
First, build the table according to the IKEA instructions.
Measure each side of the table. You’ll want to cut the lattice panels to this size.
I wanted the panel’s straight edge to be at the bottom, so I cut the top of the lattice pieces.
Then, I measured from the center of the panel, so the main design is included on each panel.
Next, I cut 3 pieces of the lattice so they fit on the outside of the table. You want the pieces cut so they can connect to the table with the magnets.
Apply magnets to one side only of the lattice with hot glue or crazy glue. One lattice side will want to be placed on the interior side of the table. This will allow the table to have an exposed metal top rail to place the door lattice cover piece when you want to be able to open the dog cage door.
Not only will this add some delight to your home but it is always handy to have another flat surface table around too!
How long did this hack take? And costs?
I cut the lattice pieces with a ZipSnip because I really wanted to complete this project on my own without help. The whole project (not including the cage which I already had) cost me about 100 dollars. Once I started it took me about 4-5 hours. Using the ZipSnip I had to stop and recharge so that added to my time.
I have gotten some really great compliments from my friends and family. Peppermint Patty didn’t skip a beat using this new cage so I would call it a success.
