This came out really beautiful! I'm thinking of building two like this for our hampers which we keep in our bedroom. We really don't have another place to put them and this is so much nicer looking! Of course, I'd have to modify it so the clothes can breathe. Certainly worth looking into...

Seeing these 2 sitting side by side gave me an idea for our trash & recyclables. My husband & I want to make one of these for our trash, but now I am thinking it would reduce the clutter from the recyclables. Thanks for posting. They look great!

This was a great project. Very easy to follow...until I got to the door. There are no instructions for the door and no link to a video. Now I have to try and "wing it" which I think is going to make my trash bin, which is a christmas present for my wife, look like trash. I only have this weekend to do this but maybe someone else will be saved by adding the directions for the door. otherwise, thanks for the great step by step.

The bins look great!  When you installed the beadboard did you just simply fasten it to the back of your door frame or did you cut grooves in your frame (on a table saw) and insert the beadboard?
