Trash Hack

What does it look like behind your rubbish bin?  I really call it a trash can, but doesn't rubbish bin sound more cultured?  I'm going to call it that from now on.  When I remember.  Once we set up the house after moving in, I noticed the lid for the one we used most was chewing a hole into my wall, and the mess was getting bigger!  Now that I've got fresh paint, I want to keep it that way!  I looked online, and found some cool gadgets to keep your trash can, er, rubbish bin a few inches away from wall, therefore eliminating the gouging entirely, to the tune of $13 each.  So I got inventive with mostly what I had on hand.  The only things I needed to purchase for this hack was placemats from Target.  They're manufactured with woven, plastic coated strands, and I liked that they were wipe-able.  $8 total.

everything else I had on hand:

Command Strips
Self-adhesive furniture felt
permanent marker
paper from the recycle bin

Here's what I did, pics only...
