    Lightbulb Homemade hanging play stand with debris catcher

    I've been thinking a while now how to make a play stand with an easy to clean debris catcher. This is what I came up with

    We've been using it for about 4 months now and has been great. I swap the drop cloth once a week. Throw it in the wash while I use the other cloth. No more than 10 minutes a week for clean up, (time is important to me).

    Problems I was trying to solve with this.

    -A perch Adrienne couldn't climb off of.
    -A perch that could be easily cleaned.
    -A perch that could catch 90% of debris and the roomba would be able to freely clean under.
    -I also didn't want Adrienne to be able to be in contact with the PVC, so I made the center stick to descend far enough down that it would discourage her from climbing down it. She has not gotten on the debris-catcher yet.

    I'm posting this because I couldn't find what I was looking for and hope that it will be helpful to others.

    I'm also looking for any feedback for improvement.

    Thanks!

    Great idea. Looks great and I cannot think of improvements at this time.
    Though I am thinking that fan blade is at risk of being chewed.
    R.I.P my little ones.

    Wow! You are very talented. And Adrienne is "beautiful". I also would worry about that fan/blades. I presume you don't run that fan when she is on her play gym.

    Welcome to the community. I hope to see you often here on the forum. Would you give us a little update on your Adrienne, how long you have had her, etc. etc. She looks to be very happy and content. And of course pictures anytime!

    Thanks guys. Adrienne is about 17 years old and I've had her for about 5 years now, she has come a long way from being a rescue. Thanks for the suggestion for the fan; I absolutely never run it and it looks closer than it is, she can't get to it.

    She has had a great life and has been well taken care of for all of those years. I admire you so much for rescuing her. I hope to see more updates about her.
