This old thing was a trash bin. No, not headed for the trash bin, but an actual trash bin. You know, to stick your garbage can in and stuff, probably so you don’t have to look at it, and so your dumb dog won’t eat all your garbage whenever you leave the house. Not that that’s ever happened to me.
But funnily enough, Carolyn actually used this trash bin to store giant bags of dog food. Everyday she would walk past it in the garage and think “I should paint that.” So one day she did. Check out all the fun and funky details on her blog at Carolyn’s Funky Furniture.
And while you’re there, tell Carolyn I have found her a kindred spirit! It’s Mary from The Decorative Paintbrush. Check out her fun and funky side table makeover below. There is SO much fabulousness going on here with the stripes and prints and patterns, but I think the look is cohesive rather than crazy because she’s only used four colors. Or technically three, if you want to be one of those people who insists white isn’t a color. Great job Mary!
