    Hello , I love the idea for cat litter with the expedit.
    I want to do one as well but I have some doubts:
    where I can find the doors? and if it possible to put come drawers above the doors? does ikea have it?

    thank you

  2. Kris says:

    The instructions say, “Get a piece of wood in the color u like for the cover” so you paint it to match the shelf or as an accent color and then install it.

    I have been trying to find out which product to use, as well. What I would do is use this product: http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/50103086/#/70103085 , and I would try to customize it to match what this looks like. I would obviously need to add doors to it, but it seems that this may be the best option.

    I am disappointed the author is not checking back. The only Expedit shelves I have seen are square of equal 13″, that is not what is above. I love the look of this cabinet. If anyone has any links to the product, I’d love a note. (nwdcam – at – gmail(dot)com.)

    I clean my cats book everyday , once in morning before leaving the house and then before bedtime.
    I wash it once a week. I only use Fresh Step.
