Yes this is another trashcan rebuild. Yes I gave the post title movie sequel-style roman numbering in the hopes of building a bit more excitement (and to set the precedent so that "Trashcan makeover XXIV" beomes a possibility sometime in the distant future).
Here's what I started with this time. Not as sleek as the previous metal design.
In fact, this trashcan might not have ever needed a makeover if the plastic "wood" used had been a more natural color.
The difficulty this time is that those plastic members are structural:
They hold the whole thing together, giving the can its shape.
That means that I had to use a different material and design, but the end result is visually almost identical to the previous one:
You can see that the cedar slats are still the structural components:
I've got a pile of plastic "wood" pieces now that I need to use somehow...
Still thinking about that one.
I'm keeping this post short because today is a holiday in the US, and who is going to be reading about trashcan revitalizations anyway?
These trashcan designs have given me an idea of how I can include something like this in my own garden without having to install a pointless trash receptacle. Stay tuned.
