Our washer and dryer stand in the back entryway, which is also our living room and adjoins our kitchen. They were very awkward and didn’t fit with the house since we’ve done so much renovation. Originally I had wanted to build a mud room but I just couldn’t make it fit with enough space. Eventually we decided “if you can’t fix it, feature it.”

The result is what you see. The Kitty Castle. L’arc de Chat. Laundered Luxury.

Cabinets are built in the same style as my kitchen cabinets. Ply boxes and drawers with soft maple fronts. Finish is catalyzed lacquer. The drawers are quite large at 32”x35”, and the bottom drawer houses two litter boxes.

The counter top is white oak finished with dark walnut danish oil and satin poly, waxed and steel wooled. I chose wide boards for the top and had to secure a few splits, which was fun and easy to do.

This has really cleaned up the space and makes the whole area FINALLY feel finished. Thank you for looking.

Looks great, Dan! Lots of space to fold clean laundry…our cats’ fav spot to sleep! :)

The litter spot is way too nice; hope your cats appreciate the workmanship…

I like it, looks very clean and the pull out is a great way to keep the waste hidden. Good job.

It came out wonderfully Pez. Split securing is an awesome touch too.

Been watching this project in the Furniture Forum, and it’s nice to see the finished project! Looks like it came out wonderfully, and I’m sure the cats will enjoy it!

Late to the party, but you did a great job featuring what most folks try to hide. Nice execution, Pez.
