DIY Trash Can Nightstand
A DIY nightstand like this one is not only stylish and 100% customizable, but also extremely affordable, making it the perfect nightstand for a kid's bedroom or guest room. Not to mention the fact that you get to brag about your excellent upcycling skills.
- PREPARE: Always work in a well ventilated area and cover nearby items with drop cloths to protect them from overspray.
Trash Can: Shake your can of Ultra Cover 2X Gloss spray paint (we used Gloss Coral) for 1 minute after the mixing ball begins to rattle. Hold the can 10-16” from the trash can and spray in a steady back-and-forth motion, slightly overlapping each stroke. Apply 1-2 light coats a few minutes apart.
Round Tray Top: Repeat the same steps on your tray using Ultra Cover 2X Gloss spray paint in Gloss White.
- FINISH: Let the trash can and round tray top dry for approximately 1-2 hours. Adhere the tray to the bottom of the wire trash can using strong adhesive glue. Allow 24 hours for the entire nightstand to dry before using.
