“Trash to treasure” is a very common phrase in the arts and crafts world, but this week, I’m really just interested in the trash receptacle. Specifically, I’m interested in this trash receptacle, which cost me $2.99 at my local grocery.
Why am I interested in this trash receptacle, you ask? For a couple of months now, I’ve been mildly alarmed by the thought of robbers stumbling into my master bathroom and peering into my trash can. Like, I think they would judge. I need a new trash can, my friends. I cannot have robbers judging me over that when they could be judging me over my art supplies, and my shocking dearth of yellow paint.
If you have a gnarly trash can you might like to replace, you’ll be happy to know you can knock out a kickass trash can in one very long day or two nights. I vote for the nights.
For me, that was night one. On night two, I had to settle on my idea. You might not be a Doctor Who fan, so in case you’re not, watch this 14-second video. It will not hurt you.
“It’s a big ball of wibbly, wobbly, timey wimey . . . stuff.” Can a quote get better than that? I decided to riff on that like this.
