Wood Tilt-Out Trash Cabinet

820K Views
Until a few weeks ago, we had a nice stainless steel trash can. Nice…but still a bit of an eyesore being a trashcan and all. Then one day, I went to step on the pedal to raise the lid and the pedal broke right off. So we began looking a new trashcans and I just wasn’t loving anything I saw. Plus, the nice ones can be surprisingly pricey. Then, I saw a friend of mine ask for recommendations for where to buy a wood trash can cabinet on Facebook and it was totally one of those “Why didn’t I think of that?!” moments!
Time: 2 Days Difficulty: Moderate

This is how it looked before. Not so pretty right? So we got to work! My husband did the building and I did the "prettying" it up.

I LOVE the weathered grey stain I used on it! It reminds me of old barn wood.

    Several of these could be combined and great for a laundry room. The longer top would be wonderful for folding clothes. Or one as a dog food container. Thanks for sharing
