Rockstar Handy Man Strikes Again!

After the fabulous closet redux, Darling Husband (aka Rockstar Handy Man) was on a roll…one of the higher priority projects on my “LIST” got knocked out!  The days of the eyesore trashcan partially blocking one of the major walkways of my kitchen are gone…HOORAY!  DH converted one of my cabinets to a pull-out trash & recycle.  I had to rearrange a few things, but am MUCH happier with the arrangement.  My cookbooks got relocated to the “new” closet…


Now I can actually see them, rather than having to get on the floor to look in this cabinet…the new home for all of my plastic storage containers…

I wonder how long I can keep it organized LOL.  These used to live in the next cabinet to the right, now it is…

Can I get a “WOOT! WOOT!” ???  It is conveniently located right beside the sink…no more need for a “garbage bowl” when chopping veggies, etc.  I am in love with this…makes a huge difference for me on several levels.  No more hideous trashcan in the walkway…

It used to sit right there at the end of the counter on the left.  That is probably the most traveled area of the house, right beside our make-shift drop zone (yes, that is on my LIST) that is at the entry door from the garage (the only one most of us use).

Removing that trashcan really made the space instantly feel tidier (despite the boys coats, backpacks & shoes everywhere).  I am sparing you a picture of the big nasty trashcan.  This wasn’t a cheap project, right under $100 with the trashcans, hardware, and mounting attachment to hook it to the door (so the whole thing pulls straight out, rather than open the door and pull the cans out)…not so bad considering a stainless steel trashcan would cost upwards of $65.

Today’s secret revealed…I don’t miss the cabinet space that I had to sacrifice, I actually LOVE the way things are arranged now, makes much better sense.  If you are considering doing this project…GO FOR IT!

  2. NICE! isn’t it great when the hubbies finally do something on the “list”! You ought to try composting–cuts way down on the trash and will be great for the garden that you are starting. You can compost most anything except animal products and cut grass (you can actually compost it but it will smell really, really bad…) Meat, dairy, eggs–no,
    eggshells, coffee grinds/filters, veggies, fruits etc.-yes
