I am remodeling our master bedroom into a little rustic/western haven. The rest of our home is farmhouse but I wanted our space a little different. I have several projects on my list and this is probably the easiest. Right now for our laundry I am using a tall, skinny wicker basket. I wanted something more rustic but didn’t want to fork out the money for what some sites were charging for laundry storage. I love Behrens galvanized containers. We have used them for our animals, displays in Farm Girl, etc. and I love the simplistic, industrial touch that the galvanized look gives. You can use it for several decorating styles.
What you will need for this project:
- Galvanized Trash Can (We got this 31 Gallon at Home Depot)
- Four Casters (size is your preference)
- Liner (unless you want to cut a board for the bottom, then you will need sander, wood, and jigsaw)
As mentioned above, I am just using a liner for my can so the screws sticking up a little from the bottom won’t bother me. However, if you do not want to use a liner and just throw your clothes in, I suggest buying a wood round, measure, use a jigsaw to cut the appropriate size, and screw into the bottom.
Next I placed my casters in quarters around the bottom of the can and screwed them in using my husband’s Milwaukee drill.And, that’s it! I plan on stenciling our brand as well as other cattle brands and spray painting them all over the can to add a different touch to it. :)
