Repurpose Planters For Prettier Trash Cans

I was hanging out at the Zum offices in Kansas City (they make this super awesome laundry soap) this past week and came across this dandy little idea. Trash cans seem to be extra expensive for anything outside of your average plastic big-box find, so why not repurpose a pretty planter instead?

Although this trash can was rather large in size, smaller platers can be found at lawn and garden centers (and online) for ridiculously good prices. Although a few areas are all mild weather year round, most of us will see snow soon and that means clearance time at greenhouses!

A simple bag is all it takes to complete it's functionality and if you want to add a dolly under it for an easy roll out, go right ahead! It's a simple idea that makes a statement and since you won't be planting anything in them, feel free to go crazy on color and hit up the spray paint aisle nearest you!
