Inspiration is coming your way! Ever wondered what you could do with that old table you have lying around? Well, turn it into a wood tilt out trash can!
I have a lot of great ideas.
Truly. I get asked all the time by family and friends how I have enough ideas, designs, or concepts to create new products or blog posts. Thankfully coming up with new ideas is never a problem for me.
Designs come so frequently at any time of the day or in any location that I make sure that I always have a notebook and pencil, or at the very minimum my phone, so I can write them all down.
You know what my real problem is? I have two actually.
1.) Knowing how to accomplish my ideas. Thank goodness for my super talented hubby, Mike. He’s definitely the “Chip” in this household. Go Team Cathcart! ;)
2.) Having the time to do all of them! Seriously. Can I have an extra 5 hours (plus lots of natural energy) a day?

Like many of my projects, this one also started off at my favorite junk shop. Psstt… this coffee station is another good one too!
Most of the time when I find myself poking around through all of its glorious goodness I come up with more projects for myself to accomplish. Funny how that works out, huh?
It is most definitely a vicious cycle!
Now, I’m going to be completely honest. Originally I wanted to create this tutorial as a DIY post. I did, and I was going to show you step-by-step how to put this beauty together.
My lack of woodworking skills kind of informed me right away that it would be nearly impossible to explain how Mike put this together.
See… this is a prime example of my “great idea”, and then I needed a little help actually making it work out.
However, you know what I did amazingly?!
Stained the top.
Oh yeaaaaa. I killed it!
NOTE: The color on the can is not incredibly accurate in my own opinion. I was pleasantly surprised that the color turned out to be more of a gray though (see photo below). Definitely a huge plus in my book!
Even though the table is already repurposed I found that the stain really helped achieve that reclaimed wood look that you know I just adore!
