LIERSKOGEN Nightstand Cat Bed Hack


This Cat Scratcher Bed used the IKEA LIERSKOGEN Nightstand. I made a cardboard insert but you can put in a cushion. The nightstand post comes in 3 different size sections so you can set to a desired height. I ended up with the medium height section so it ended up at approximately 19" tall (48.2 cm).
