Regardless of individual design preferences, the trash bin is usually not incorporated into the design and flow of the kitchen. This tutorial offers a solution that works efficiently and is a fine looking enhancement for any workspace.

The main component of the cabinet is constructed of pine boards and a scrap of plywood. The pine is inexpensive and easy to work with and takes a paint finish quite easily. When measuring for the completed cabinet, please add 3″ to the overall dimension of the trash bin for ease of use.

The hardware is another aspect that can be customized to suit the homeowner. Drawer pulls run the gamut in price from re-cycled to those costing over $100. The choice is limited only by the taste and budget of the consumer. A trip to the local home improvement center will score you all the needs you may have. Add in the budget a bit for the hinges ,a bit of chain, and the eye screws.

The select of paint or stain is another variable, but most workspaces have an overall theme that is easy to pick up and contrast or compliment. The finish will also add a finished look to this intermediate skill level project. Basic power tools are needed for completion.

Materials needed:

WOOD – Standard pine boards and a little plywood (1) 1×12 – 8′, (1) 1×8 – 8′, (2) 1×6 – 3′, scrap 3/4″ plywood

NOTE: these are what we used and your design may be different depending on the dimensions of your trashcan.


Drawer pull, (2) hinges, a bit of chain, (4) eye screws


Paint, clear finish, sandpaper, wire brush
