Once 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 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 wanting much more organized:
So the place is all of that stuff now? I’d say half of it’s simply gone. Twenty-five % is neatly saved inside our home and the remaining (backyard instruments, and many others.) are nonetheless ready a very good storage spot and are outdoors within the again. (The garden mower, for instance, is beneath the again deck touchdown stairs).
We knew many of the stuff within the storage could possibly be higher organized, so we turned it into a lovely kitchen as a substitute!
See the hidden window at the back of the storage? Right here it’s now!!
What the again of the storage appears to be like like now:
The trash can and recycling bin have been two objects we knew we couldn’t convey inside. So we determined to do a trash can storage deck for hidden trash can storage as a substitute. Thomas the handyman DIYed this one himself, and it turned out fairly properly!

Thomas had beforehand constructed a bit of 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 at all times amazed watching him flip nothing into one thing! You may see that Gus thinks this deck is unquestionably being constructed for him!
Birch received a couple of classes in nails!
The difficult half
I really like how he crammed within the hole with pebbles and a step stone.
We now have greater than sufficient room for the trash can, recycling bin, and some different objects (the step stool received’t be outdoors for lengthy – it’s getting used for this undertaking). 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 will 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 images 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 previous touchdown so it might be seamless). And one way or the other 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.
