Hidden Trash Can Storage • Kath Eats

After we renovated our home, we turned our storage into a brand new kitchen. So we needed to discover a new place for our trash cans. Right here is our resolution for DIY hidden trash can storage! 

Storage Is Going Going Gone

Our trash can and recycling bin had been beforehand saved within the storage – together with 1,000 different issues! The storage went by many iterations of junk storage. This picture was it as its worst!!!

Right here it’s wanting much more organized:

So the place is all of that stuff now? I’d say half of it’s simply gone. Twenty-five p.c is neatly saved within our home and the remainder (backyard instruments, and many others.) are nonetheless ready storage spot and are exterior within the again. (The garden mower, for instance, is underneath the again deck touchdown stairs).

We knew a lot of the stuff within the storage could possibly be higher organized, so we turned it into a fantastic kitchen as a substitute!

Storage Demo

See the hidden window at the back of the storage? Right here it’s now!!

What the again of the storage appears like now: 

The trash can and recycling bin had been two objects we knew we couldn’t carry inside. So we determined to do a trash can storage deck for hidden trash can storage as a substitute. Thomas the handyman DIYed this one himself, and it turned out fairly properly!

Thomas had beforehand constructed slightly patio on this spot for our canine Gus to hang around. However now that Gus has a pleasant facet porch, we took over his patio and relocated the stones to a different a part of the yard. 

The way it began:

DIY In Progress

Thomas then construct a low-to-the-ground deck over prime of the muddy space that after was the patio. I’m at all times amazed watching him flip nothing into one thing! You possibly can see that Gus thinks this deck is unquestionably being constructed for him! 

Birch obtained a couple of classes in nails! 

The difficult half

I really like how he crammed within the hole with pebbles and a step stone.

We have now greater than sufficient room for the trash can, recycling bin, and some different objects (the step stool received’t be exterior for lengthy – it’s getting used for this undertaking). Whereas nothing is protected against the weather, it’s nonetheless good to have the ability to have some outside storage in right here and/or room to develop into an even bigger can if wanted.

We LOVE that we will take out the trash or put in recycling with out having to open the doorways – simply drop it excessive! 

Thomas would really like everybody to know that he’s ending the within with much more wooden, however I couldn’t wait to take pictures of that : ) 

The perimeters are cedar and can fade over time. 

We additionally love the way it connects to the stair touchdown resulting in the yard (Thomas changed the outdated touchdown so it might be seamless). And in some way he has already gotten all of the grass to develop too!

Right here’s the view from the facet door. And the stroller lives on the market more often than not too.
