Got Junk in Your Trunk?

When we found this we were asked... what do you want that piece of garbage for?  *DING DING DING*   For GARBAGE!  We've been combing over ideas for a new fun garbage can ... and that little comment was just enough to send our  minds whirling!  With a few tweaks, added bits of random hardware and a table saw, we refunked this trunk into our new garbage can. Someone else suggested a dog food bin and laundry hamper.  Whatever works!

The front swings open on hinges as well. So any tall skinny tub can be easily be placed in and taken out!
