Upcycled Trash Can

by Cindi
I had this old Galvanized trash can (almost like the one I have shown here) which I stored my small stash of firewood for our nightly fires in my fire pit. Sorry, I forgot to take a "before" photo but quite similar to this one.
I happen to have some black and yellow spray paint and luckily found a finial from an old curtain rod which I also painted yellow. Now I can hide my firewood in a beautiful contained area.

    Have you had any trouble with water getting in through the area where you put the strap (which I assume is to keep the lid attached to the can)?

    I've always heard that firewood had to be exposed to air
