My friend who is a contractor just moved into a new apartment and didn’t have anywhere to put his garbage and recycling, so I decided to make him a little island for his kitchen with two garbage roll outs. It was a nice quick project and I had most of the materials left over from other projects. White MCP boxes with oak doors stained espresso.

Wow, those look excellent. Did you make the doors or source them? If sourced, link? Wondering if I can duplicate this in my kitchen – have space for it.

Very clean, and very handy dandy. I take my recyclables once a month here in town. We should all recycle, if possible. Save our planet
