A Recycling Box Re-Do

First of all I dropped by from Tootsie's. Second, I cannot believe this post! My daughter's and I were talking just last evening about if we could talk their dad into doing just this very thing. I HATE our recycling bins on the porch....timely post!

It looks great! I wish my hubby was so handy. I have two lovely blue bans right in the kitchen lol. But he does a good job making sure they get emptied each week! :)
