Yesterday, I shared a peak at Sadie’s new window seat. She really likes being up there. It’s a short jump from our bed to the basket and she has quite a view of our back yard.
Here’s what you need to make one for your fur baby.
* A basket tray (I purchased mine at HomeGoods for $14.99)
* Piece of thin plywood cut about two inches smaller than the bottom of the basket.
* 2 brackets (purchased at Home Depot)
Mount your brackets underneath the window trim. Screw piece of plywood to the top of the brackets. Sit basket on top of the plywood.
To attach the basket to the plywood, we drilled two holes down through the basket and wood underneath and fed a heavy duty zip tie through both holes to the underside of the board and pulled it tight. Then we trimmed the ends of the zip tie so you can’t see them. So you can see, the perch is supported, but I wanted to give the look that it was hanging. Here’s where the jute rope comes in.
