Computer Monitor Cat Bed
March 16, 2012 Leave a comment
Did you just do a double-take, kid makers? It’s an old computer monitor, emptied of its parts and filled instead with a pillow and cat!
But it’s always more fun to make one yourself, so click here for instructions! If you don’t have an old computer monitor or TV at your house, check a nearby thrift store. As CRT monitors are being replaced with newer, slimmer LCD screens, this is a great way to upcycle something old into something useful.
One of the most fun parts of this project …
is that while you’re making it you ALSO learn what’s inside a monitor and how they work! Click here for a fascinating look at the technology inside CRT monitors. If it makes you curious, find an adult helper and a screwdriver and make your own computer monitor cat bed!
SAFETY NOTE: Find an adult to do this project with you, as the insides of monitors can be sharp and small, and even old capacitors can hold an electrical charge. See the instructions for tips.
