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 answer 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 photograph 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 inside our home and the remaining (backyard instruments, and so on.) are nonetheless ready a superb storage spot and are outdoors 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 might be higher organized, so we turned it into a wonderful kitchen as an alternative!
See the hidden window at the back of the storage? Right here it’s now!!
What the again of the storage seems 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 an alternative. Thomas the handyman DIYed this one himself, and it turned out fairly properly!

Thomas had beforehand constructed a bit 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.

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 may see that Gus thinks this deck is unquestionably being constructed for him!

The tough half
I really 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 objects (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 outside storage in right here and/or room to develop into a much 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 love everybody to know that he’s ending the within with much more wooden, however I couldn’t wait to take photographs 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.
