Nice, please feel free to post the finished product!! I did something like that with an old bird cage and I ended up using just a white piece of wooden backing for the back held intact with brad nails.

I LOVE these ideas! I like re-vamping furniture for human use, but wow! I love that you can do this for your sweet animals

I'd like to see the finished product too!

I can't wait to see how it looks either. Its inspired me to keep an eye out for something like that to make a new cage for my bun. She's in my kitchen and it would be nice to NOT have a big ugly cage in there. But if she was inside a nice piece of furniture, it would look so much better!
Thanks for sharing this!

Love this! I can't tell, though, what's in front. Is it open in the middle section there, or is it glass or screen or something? It's like an indoor aviary.

I'm excited...today is move in day...I just dragged the armoire/house into the house from the garage so that some glue can dry....hopefully later today everything will be ready to go. I still haven't quite configured the bottom run part...I want to get it into place and then take some measurements. I have some wire cubes and wood ready to go...here's a quick preview...

I tried to do this with some bookshelves and my guys didn't want to be up high, so they didn't use the shelves. Not all bunnies like to jump up and older bunnies certainly don't, so you may want to keep that in mind as Bun gets older. I also didn't know what to use to hold down the mesh--thanks for the helpful idea with the wood strips, guys! One day when I grow up I will have nice things... like a nice-looking bunny cage!

More pics, please! Looks great from what I can see.

I see you have no ramps (which I never use), but I was picturing larger openings between levels. I have no idea whether that makes a difference or not. I've just never seen it that way.

What did the height end up being between levels?
