Abracadabra!

My pet hate? Rubbish bins permanently stored at the front of the house. Ugh. Add a burnt-out car to the front lawn and it'd be picture perfect.

Since we're a bit tight on space, our bins have been living at the side of our house, just in front of the gate. Handy, but not ideal from an aesthetic point of view.


So over the weekend, Bike Boy collected together the leftover bits of decking from the front porch, picked up a few other odds and ends and made the bins disappear. Voila:


As a bonus, it hides the gas and electricity meters and the Telstra box. It also just screens the top of our shed from view. Very nice. :)

What a great idea!

Wow! Looks great. Can't even tell there's bins hiding behind it & the screen matches in well with your fascade. :)

And the best part? It cost next to nothing.

That looks really good. hmm I'll have to add it to the long list of things to do. Just don't ask how many things are on the list. I've lost count.

That's a damn good idea and looks very professional. Well done!

That looks great, very simple but fantastic. Looks great with your timber windows and blinds too :)
