The new issue of House Beautiful was the inspiration for this week's Item Of The Week - wastebaskets. Yes, trash containers! Not like this:
But like this:
These are just a few of the 50 they highlight that caught my eye. Some of these are just too pretty to put trash in!
I'm sure you could re-purpose these trash cans to really enjoy them in other ways, too - to hold some extra fabric, rolled up and kept neatly in place; a faux (silk) plant container; a holder for those little umbrellas (the pop-up ones); craft supplies; kindling wood for starting your fireplace or wood stove; and, of course, you could use them as a trash can.
My trash would look hot in those. ;)
Oh how I wish I could convert to something pretty like that! With a teen, tween and toddler, I think NOT! LOL
Coming by from SITS with a big HELLO & Welcome!
It is the little touches like these that make a room special, yes? Love the aqua one.
Who knew garbage could look so good?! :-)
When we were in Belgium a couple of years ago, my hubby found the coolest trash can in a store we were in. For him to get excited about something in a home decor store was quite the moment!! So of course, I encouraged him to buy it!! It's gray and has hologram-looking letters all over it. If we ever finish my home office, I'll post pics of the room and you'll see the cool trash can in it :-)
Thanks for mentioning our giveaway in your sidebar :-)
I agree Marie!
Thanks for the welcome Aubrey! I would only use something like this for "dry" trash myself, unless I tucked a plastic bag inside it for protection.
Absolutely Kathy - those little touches can add that last something needed in a room.
Kelly ~ When they show an interest - go with it! I'd love to see your office when it's done.
Those gorgeous cans would NEVER survive in my house lol. Especially not with my preschooler!
I love the first one though. It promises to possibly be the only survivor lol
Just dropping by to welcome you to the SITStahood.
Very cute pails!
I understand Lisa - mine are grown up now so I can do these things! : ) Thanks for the welcome!
Jackie, who knew you could make a statement with a trash pail!
Kathy, these are sooooo pretty! Makes me feel crafty! I have extra powder room wallpaper. Maybe I'll cover a cheap plastic paleto match the room. Hmmmm, what trim to finish it off with? Maybe gimp?
Thanks for posting!
Leona ~ That sounds like a great idea! Such a creative mind you have! If you do it, you should post a pic; I'd love to see how it turns out.
At first I was thinking, oh yeah, trash containers. Then I saw that last one! It reminds me of the one I use for a small Christmas tree each year, and I love that one!
Have a great holiday weekend,
They had even more on the website and magazine Donna! 50 actually. These were just a few that caught my eye. I like your use for it!
I loved that issue of House Beautiful as well! But I did miss that article! I like the last one on your list!
I love that there are so many styles and patterns to something as simple as a wastebasket!
Ooooh those are some purdy trash cans!! Love them.
Thanks for visiting Sarah!
