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!
