One of those little things I’ve wanted in our kitchen was a good way to hide the trash/recycling bins. It’s really not a good idea, aesthetically, to put all this blood, sweat, and tears into a project and then just leave a trash bin out in the middle of it when you’re done (I think). After a bit of poking around on the interwebs, I realized that there are kits that give you little pull out, under counter trash cans, all pre-made for you. I love it when things are easy!
This weekend, I finally got around to dropping the $75 on the kit I wanted, and am happy to report that this little project was a cinch, and the kit was worth the money for the time and effort it saved me.
Exhibit A: Cabinet, empty and alone.
Exhibit B: The “Rev-A-Shelf” insert, available at your local Lowe’s or Amazon.com. It seems expensive, but for what it is, I’d say worth it.
After about 10 minutes of unpacking and setup, all it takes is 4 screws to install this in a cabinet. I got about 95% of the way there on my own, and had Dan help me out with finishing up the screwing in part – let’s face it, I just suck at power tools. One day I will be better! This was not that day.
Exhibits C & D: Just a few minutes later, we were up and running!
It tucks nicely into the cabinet, and has a handy-dandy handle to pull it out when you need it. Easy project, and one more done to check off the list!
