I’m hoping that this is a good project to share with the folks on ShabbyNest on Friday. Have you seen the fab things that they are producing?!
If you are like me and have a kitchen that usually heaves with people you will understand my dilemma. I need my recycling handy so that I actually recycle but I also need every centimetre of my kitchen space to be useable. Plus, recycle bins fairly ooze the ugly factor-no wonder some people find it a pain to recycle.
Don’t even mention the ugly floor. I know (sigh.)
The husband created a very clever solution that we’ve been using for awhile now that I thought I would share. It’s a window seat with a pull-up seat.
The cover changes as it gets stained beyond cleaning and I always use material that I have around (right now the fancy black leather top is a former leather skirt) and as such don’t feel badly getting my staple gun out and changing it often. We used wood that we had in the garage and a louver door that the former owner had left with every chemical they had used to allow for air flow. Don’t worry about making a bottom to the piece as the recycling is housed by the bins so the mess is contained within.
