Lets talk trash…here at Fishtail Cottage ~ our kitchen garbage can has always been fancy…you know the kind you wave your knee in front of when you have a handful of garbage to dump? Battery operated so it automatically opens for you so you don’t have to try very hard to toss something in? When the automatic door doesn’t open fast enough for you, there is a foot press that you can simply step on to magically open. I know ~ fancy fancy! Well the problem with those fancy garbage cans is that it’s easy to miss the garbage can for some reason and/or over fill it ~ or maybe it’s just my family? You certainly can’t clean it real good because of the electrical parts that can’t get wet… that said, when I was out thrifting recently I came upon this beautiful creation – a good 'ol fashion garbage can – the kind you have to lift the lid off yourself and if it gets dirty, well ~ I can hose it out! Unbelievable, right?
its even got rust and paint splatter on the lid…
Can you believe that my kids complained how ‘gross’ this one is? I just laughed! Apparently they didn’t notice the amount of ‘utter filth’ in the crevices of the old one. To see where else I am linking to this week – please check my “Cottage Links” label…xoxo, tracie
Hope the sun is shining on you today:-)
Maybe paint the bottom however the lid is so today, RUST
I love your beautiful "new" one. It's simply lovely and I'd trade my automatic one any day for it!
