Outdoor Organization: Trash

CIMG0246Excuse me, I mean recyclables…  So you know how I like everything pretty and organized?  Well this is the prettiest and most organized trash bins I have ever seen…(I am sure many of you could challenge me on this one though!)  Who knew garbage cans could be so photogenic? CIMG0239 Go ahead and write, stencil, whatever you want on to the cover.  I did mine with pencil. CIMG0241 Cover with paint.  I might as well have free-handed it…I practically did anyways…but I was nervous…  And feel free to paint on the carpet in the living room…just don’t tell anyone as non-free-spirited-crafters would not understand.  A wet rag cleans it up pretty quickly.CIMG0245

I am back from camp…have to unpack and dust the dirt off my whole body…

What do you do with your recyclables?

  4. We don't have a recycling place that comes to our street, so we just take our newspapers to the dump and they have a recycling spot for those. Love the paint job, Miss Trashy. ;)

  5. I put mine on the kitchen counter and each evening my husband makes them disappear. :)

  6. Our trash company doesn't do recycling in our neighborhood since there aren't enough customers :-(. So we just have one big trash.

  9. You are so organized. Mine go into red tubs. Hard to hide something big and red.
    I haven't been around for a while so I caught up on your posts. Nice day with your Mom looks like fun to me. . .and by the way, you have the prettiest smile. You should smile often.

  10. Love this! Maybe I could get my landlords to agree to let me paint on their bins... I always mix up which one's for trash and which ones for paper!

  12. What kind of paint did you use? I'd like to put my name on our garbage can...as someone stole our other one filled with garbage.
