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 have been beforehand saved within the storage – together with 1,000 different issues! The storage went via many iterations of junk storage. This picture was it as its worst!!!
Right here it’s trying 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 so on.) are nonetheless ready a very good storage spot and are outdoors within the again. (The garden mower, for instance, is underneath the again deck touchdown stairs).
We knew many of the stuff within the storage might be higher organized, so we turned it into a fantastic kitchen as an alternative!
See the hidden window behind the storage? Right here it’s now!!
What the again of the storage seems like now:
The trash can and recycling bin have been two gadgets we knew we couldn’t convey inside. So we determined to do a trash can storage deck for hidden trash can storage as an alternative. Thomas the handyman DIYed this one himself, and it turned out fairly properly!

Thomas had beforehand constructed just a little patio on this spot for our canine Gus to hang around. However now that Gus has a pleasant aspect 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 high of the muddy space that when was the patio. I’m all the time 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 number of classes in nails!
The tough half
I like how he crammed within the hole with pebbles and a step stone.
We’ve got greater than sufficient room for the trash can, recycling bin, and some different gadgets (the step stool gained’t be outdoors for lengthy – it’s getting used for this challenge). Whereas nothing is protected against the weather, it’s nonetheless good to have the ability to have some out of doors storage in right here and/or room to develop into an even bigger can if wanted.
We LOVE that we are able to 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 edges 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 could be seamless). And in some way he has already gotten all of the grass to develop too!
Right here’s the view from the aspect door. And the stroller lives on the market more often than not too.
