DIY Litter Box Curtain from Skirt

We recently acquired our first indoor cat, Yuki. I decided to locate his litter box in the laundry room. It's the most logical place for it.

It was a quick and easy project - quicker than creating this post!


Litter box
Kitty litter
Fabric for curtain
Tension rod
Screw driver

  1. I measured the opening, adding an inch for the hidden tension rod. 
  2. I removed the door from the sink cabinet by unscrewing the hinges. I taped the screws to the door for future use.
  3. I dug through my thrift-shop stash of clothing purchased for the fabric, not because they fit. I chose a cheerful, floral linen, gourd skirt. It was 25" long, the exact length I needed.
  4. I sewed the top edges of the waistband together to close the opening. If you don't sew, you can use staples, safety pins, or hot glue.
  5. I cut a slit on the inside of the waistband on each side, which formed a rod pocket, which I slid the rod through.
  6. I slid the rod into the cabinet and unscrewed it enough to create tension.
  7. I arranged the "curtain" and I was done.
Yuki liked it so much I didn't think he'd ever come out.
