I bought some duck cloth from Joann's for $10 a yard. I wanted something like an indoor/outdoor fabric that would not act like Velcro with the cat hair and would come clean fairly easy.
I didn't bother measuring how much exactly I needed but figured 3 yards would do, and I had a 50% off coupon so it was a pretty cheap project!
Anyway, I started by vacuuming as much hair off as I could. Not very successful but it would get covered up anyway.
|It was pretty gross. All this hair is just caked into the carpeting. Y.U.K|
|Take the tower apart (Allen wrench needed) |
Take BEFORE pics!!! You will need them for reference to put the thing back together when you finish!
|Measure and cut fabric to cover each piece.|
|Label your fabric pieces in case they get mixed up!|
|It was easiest (and more secure) to glue, then staple the edges.|
|Fold edges under and glue small sections at a time, pulling the fabric tight as you go.|
|Once all side are glued, staple the edges with a staple gun|
|DONE! Repeat with each piece. Some pieces will take more patience than others... And you will be sure to burn your fingers a few times with scalding hot glue........|
|Finished Product! :)|
|I think it looks pretty good, eh?|
