We have french doors for an entry to our house and the first thing that anyone sees when they come in is the kitchen. What has bugged my wife for several years is that our trash can was out in the open (even though it was a very nice stainless steel pop top). Since I am in the process of building all new kitchen cabinets, I figured what the heck, why not build a standalone cabinet that matches the facade of the new cabinets to be. When I suggested this to my wife, she asked if it could be made big enough to keep a recycling container as well. After I finished the cabinet, it also became the new home for our coffee maker…talk about multifunctional :-)

That is beautiful! -exponentially more attractive than recyclables spilling all over the kitchen!

You used recycled lumber, right? Looks like Cedar and Pine. Looks REAL nice.
