There’s something very satisfying about going for a cheap, regular object and transforming it into something beautiful. That’s precisely what these crafters do, with something you will possibly not ever consider repurposing – a trash can! Listed below are six ways to carefully turn Trash Cans into Treasure.
Modern Light Fixture
Lesley of Chaotically Creative purchased several cheap wire trash bins from Focus on, but a lamp went off. Suddenly, she realized the present-day form of the trash cans would make perfect light fittings. Using wire cutters, she cut an opening underneath the bin. Then she attached a pendant package, and finally, aerosol painted the whole lot gold. Now nobody will ever know her beautiful pendant light was once a waste materials paper basket!
The Decor Expert scored this plain plastic trash can for $4, and today it’s a lovely planter! Plastic material planters of the size can run $30 to $50, so it’s a great money-conserving task if you’re searching for a home for your vegetation. For proper drainage, make sure to drill openings underneath. The Design Master warns you not to use too much pressure when drilling that you split the plastic material. Last for design, she added scribbly lines with a long-term marker.
Amy of Homey Oh My took a boring wire trash can that she’s had since university and turned it into a herb stand. First, she assessed and designated the trash can with chalk. She attached a dark and white ribbon to the can with a hot glue gun, using the chalk marks as her guide. A straightforward project with a brilliant cute result.
Child Size Stools
These child-size stools created from trash cans on Homemade Ginger are so creative. Megan needed the right size tools to match her kids’ crafting desk, but buying new furniture wasn’t in her budget. Instead, she purchased three cheap trash cans and squirted colored them white. With two in. thick foam, plus some durable fabric, she made group-shaped cushions to match at the top of each trash can. She attached the cushions to the newly coated cans with Velcro. Now; she’s adorable and unique stools that cost next to nothing at all!
Debbie of Refresh Restyle turned her wire baskets into cloches. The top cloche was a trash bin; small cloches were created from small baskets. She decorated the baskets with chalk paint for a shabby stylish look. She then attached adorable drawer pulls for deals.
Wrapping Paper Storage
Merrilee of Mer Mag was storing her rolls of wrapping paper in this common wire waste container, but it was making her sad. It had been just too boring. With only a can of platinum apply paint, she offered it a facelift. Or as she places it, “changed this drab little bin into a gilded earn.”
