Pallet Wood Scores Again

Really became tired of looking at the recycling bins on the porch. Pallets to the rescue!
I did not take any photos of the project in the making, but very simple. Had some extra 2x4's that I cut to frame the size of the two garbage baskets that I purchased.
I then covered the frame using cut to size pallet boards.
A piece of plywood was used for the lid which was attached with a few $5 hinges. Stained the whole thing with leftover stain from our deck and there you have it. No more looking at ugly bins.
