Hoop Trash Can

Submitted by spiceylg on Sat, 11/10/2018 - 03:23

My family is doing a home made Christmas this year.  I fell in love with this plan the first time I saw it.  While out shopping, I happened upon this trash can on sale which reminded me of a basketball net and knew I had to build this project.  We used leftover plywood which necessitated using paint to hide blemishes.  The size was modified a bit to fit this trash can.  I think it is really cute!

Estimated Cost
$6 as the paint, 2x4 and plywood used were left over from other projects. The longest amount of time was taken up by painting, not the actual build.

Day Project (6-9 Hours)
Type of Wood
2x4 and 1/2" plywood - pine

Black - actually a stain - unsure of brand and not close by as I type this - Ebony
