I have absolutely no where to hide a trash can. Bummer, for real.
I once used a super chic metal trash can that was a little more pleasing to the eye. However, after countless grunts, whines, and fights between the trash can and husband, I gave in and bought an ugly white (yet practical) trash can.
I hate that thing. I mean hate. It was so ugly. It was such an eye soar. It had to go. But... husband said no.
So... I redid it.
One old book
One ugly white trash can
One cute pup to help you (optional but not helpful)
and that's it!
I simply tore out the pages, cut off the margins, and cut the pages into all different size strips. Then, I just started modpodging. VIOLA:
I felt like it needed just one more touch of cuteness. I went to Joanns and found these round wooden chips. I had seen another trashcan just like this with the words "outbox" written across the top. So, I went for it.
The final result is adorable. It looks so much better in my kitchen now! I actually get excited when I get to use my trash can. #dork.
Took me about 1.5 hours and a soar rear from sitting on that floor but it was so worth it.
Total Cost: $2.99.
(for the letters, I had everything else)
