Here is an interesting project I was asked to make. What could be better, looking at a plain trash can in a kitchen or a nice piece of wood work. This is my own design and I have to admit it was a challenge making the bin match the trash can. I started with the body then added the reveals at top and bottom. I gave the top a slight angle. Now for the doors. I went with picture frame style. I noticed I had some bead board left over from a prior projects and decided that would give it a nice rustic look. The knobs are old, I bought a dozen at a flea market a few years ago and thought they would make a nice addition. Made from pine and stained with jacobean stain, the new owners choice, and finished with three coats of gloss polyurethane. In all a fun project.

Nice job Jeff. That’s one heck of a stain job you did on the trash bin. Great way to hide the trash.

Thanks for the comments guys. I appreciate them. I agree the stain came out a bit dark on the bead board.

Excellent work Jeff. Personally, I like the contrast of the dark stain on the bead board. Gives it a nice, rustic look!
