Garbage/Recycle Storage Box

Cover up those ugly garbage and recycle bins with a storage box! Since we don’t have an attached garage, our bins sit on our side porch and… it looks like garbage. I wanted something to cover them up that was simple, but also matched our house.

This tutorial is perfect for you if you’re looking to cover something up along your house: propane tank, air conditioning unit, hoses, or other eye sores!
