Fabric-Covered Garbage Can with Monogram

Christy from Confessions of a Serial Do-It-Yourselfer shows that even a garbage can be cute – without costing you $89! Christy took a run-of-the-mill plastic garbage can and turned it into a real beauty with fabric and trim. She even added a monogram to the fabric before adhering it to the waste basket for an extra special touch. Isn’t Christy’s decorative wastebasket a dead ringer for her Ballard inspiration?!?

  1. You are so talented and practical. Enjoy your site and have gained much knowledge on doing it myself. I would like to know if possible, where you bought your fabric to cover the trash can? I would search the fabric stores, but I live way out in the country and gas money is cannot be wasted. Thanks for your advice. Carry on, Alicel
