Re: D.I.Y. bin storage unit

This is a great project for anyone wanting to hide their unsightly rubbish bins. 

 

Hope it inspires you to do something similar. 

 

I have added a video below or you can find full details on the Bunnings website.

Re: D.I.Y. bin storage unit

These are really funky. Bins look so, you know, bleah. This makes the whole area look elegant, specially with those black hinges. Looks more like a treasure chest than a rubbish receptacle. The video makes it look pretty straight forward. What kind of bit do you need to drill holes for countersunk heads?

Yep. Thought about something like this before so now  I’ve seen it I’m up for it. Although having to pull the bins in and out every time you put rubbish in isn’t ideal. Might work a top hinge/strut system into mine. Good job.

Hi @LongHorn,

 

Thanks for joining in the discussion. It would be great to see what you come up with. Workshop members have also previously posted about a similar project on Better Homes and Gardens that you might be interested in. 

 

Let me also extend a very warm welcome to the Workshop community. It's great to have you onboard. I hope you find plenty of helpful information and inspiration from our members. And please feel free to post anytime you need a hand or have a project to share.
