We bought a few boxes to sort out our recycling, but in this part of the world the sun and the wind make short work of any plastic bin you might leave around outside, so I built a box to sit by our front door. It also doubles a bench of sorts.
The design evolved from the wood that was available, rather than any master plan. It’s made entirely from scrap or discards from other projects; fence-posts filled with nails, shelves from a broken unit, trim used as temporary support on some previous building work etc. But with a coat of appropriate treatment and a couple of coats of paint, this should last for many years.
This particular shade of blue complies fully with the in-laws/landlords brand guidelines.
