DIY decorated garbage “Trash is gold” (ikea hack)

Diy decorated garbage "trash is gold" ikea hack

A little slogan on my garbage bin (it’s actually my recycling bin), to remind me to recycle, reuse and try more and more to tend towards zero-waste lifestyle so that most of the things I buy (and I try to buy less) go in this bin (ideally in no bin!)

I know the spray paint is not a step in the right direction but I already had it so I used it. I am looking for more eco-friendly options!

anyways I spray painted my garbage can and it looks pretty cool!

You also get a first look at our new “window breakfast” area!

Let everything dry and remove slowly. If some places leaked you can remove the paint with nail polish remover and a q-tip!
