Clever Ways to Hide Ugly Spots in the House

Hide a kitty litter box: Cats are sweet, and cats are adorable, and some cats can even use the toilet. However, if your cat has not been trained to use the toilet (seriously, it is possible and a lot of people do it), there is the issue of where to put the litter box, and how to obscure the litter box from view if you happen to be showing your home to potential buyers (or if you don't like to look at the litter box). Amy from the blog The Blissful Bee built a very attractive skirted table to hide her cat's litter box. It's an inexpensive solution that could be accomplished by an advanced beginner.

Hide your TV with a sliding shutter: While a nice, big, flat screen TV could make a living room look more attractive to buyers, an old, bulky TV might work against you. Kim from Today's Creative Blog built a television cover out of a sliding shutter. It looks simple like a window is hiding behind the shutter. It's an inventive way to hide outdated electronics.

Hide the remote: Building a custom coffee table with built-in storage is a stylish way to create space to store odds and ends that could distract buyers from the overall look of the room. Of course, this does not have to be a DIY project, as there are plenty of affordable storage ottomans and coffee tables on the market at almost every price point. Props to Lisa from Recaptured Charm for building it herself.
