Recycle Bin Make Over

I went to the store to find a stainless steal recycle bin/ garbage can. Those things are well over $80 for the size I wanted. {grumble, grumble}

This one sells for $80.49 at Target

I remembered some supplies I had at home and decided to make my own. For much much less (I saved myself over $65)

So, I purchased a $15 black garbage can.

Here are my tools of choice. I already had them from another project. BUT after doing this, I would HIGHLY recommend you use a spray paint primer instead of rolling it on like I did. It will give you a smoother finish. I just put 2 layers of primer. Let dry completely. Then spray painted the whole thing. I did rub the finish product with an old rag because with this particular spray paint told me to do that to give it a shine and look more like stainless steal.

Here she is in all her glory. My $15 recycle bin.
