Well, I have this little white plastic trash can for my washroom. I’ve had it for about 10 years. I’ve always wanted to replace it with one of those fancy ones made out of ceramic or wood or whatever, but those things can run like $40. I’ve just never felt like we were there yet with any of our washrooms and we’re certainly not there with these washrooms in the new house yet.
The other day I got an idea for a quick fix.
This idea is an oldy but a goody for sure. Don’t like something? Wrap it in twine!
You know how it goes. Wrap wrap wrap, glue gun, wrap wrap wrap, burn your fingers.
I added a little “G” stamp for our last name. It occurred to me after that people might think the G is for Garbage. That works too!
It’s like a whole new trash can! Plus I think it looks kind of beachy, which is fun.
Total cost of this project: $2. $1 cause I ran out of twine and needed to buy more, and $1 cause I lost all my craft paints in a box somewhere and I needed white for the stamp.
That’s a whole lot better than $40 for sure!
In fact, I think this may be my favorite project of the month! Linking up for the “Best DIY Projects of February” party!
