Kids desk and cat toilet all in one


The desk is made of 2 Ikea PS lockers and one very long MDF board. We had one made with a length of 3,6 meters by 40,5 cm. Paint the board any colour you like and place it over the lockers. If the space between the lockers is very wide, it is best to support the plate with some sort of lath to avoid bending.


We have also created a cat flap in one of the lockers and now use it as a cat toilet. A small litter box fits inside the locker perfectly.

    You may love kids, you may love cats, but this combo is completely unacceptable.

    I don’t care how clean you think your house is, how clean you think your cats are … unaccepatable.

    Cats are pretty clean, but not that clean. There are some smells, they track some litter and possible other contaminants.

    I propose the owner has one of these the litterbox cabinets installed over the their personal bed …

    That’s disgusting!

    It looks great, and cleaned out properly is going to pose no danger to you or your children. The people who freak out over enclosed litter trays either don’t have cats or just don’t clean them out properly. It’s constant on this site…

    A closed litter box is inside the cabinet, which is cleaned out daily. The cat goes outside as well, so it uses the box at night only. Also the kids aren’t sitting here doing their homework. This is just a sidetable with some pencils on it in our kitchen. If the kids want to, they can sit here.

    The comments have made me think about Toxoplasmosis, but if the litterbox is kept clean this should not be a problem. I’m not sure if I will keep the desk as it is. Perhaps another cabinet should replace this one, so the one with the litter box inside can be moved elsewhere.

    LOL to compare baby shit with cat shit. Animal feces poses a higher disease and parasite risk. Plus, the turd is just left there, in a cabinet… But if you like doing homework or eating snacks next to toilets, to each their own I guess.

    @Mike: Check this out “”. Baby diapers are harmless.
    Unusual combinations are seen, in most cases, as creative but I’m not so sure about this idea! However, there must be a reason behind this hack which I don’t see or understand, so I won’t judge but I wouldn’t do it myself.

    I’m curious about those chairs. Are those old east german class room chairs? They look a lot like what I have in my memories.

  8. Mike says:

    Oh get over yourselves. The litter box is inside a closed cabinet. The kid is just next to it, not eating out of the litter box. Worse things happen when a baby shits its diaper.

    Ok, is any else freaked out about this hack or is it just me?

  10. Carrie says:

    It looks nice, but I personally would not want my desk anywhere near the litterbox nor would I imagine any kid. Plus, two siblings that close together doing homework? If it was my sister and I twenty years ago we would spend more time fighting with each other for space than actually doing homework.

    Unexpectable combination…
