Garbage Bin Re-Do

We decided to re-do the garbage bin, after noticing it has been slowly decaying and getting in rough shape.

Gerry picked up some treated 5/8's plywood and a number of treated 2x4's from RONA Home & Garden .
He liked the selection that RONA Home & Garden offered, the yard layout and helpful store associates/yard crew.
At home he already had the hinges, 4x4 posts and a selection of wood deck screws.
He wanted to maximize wood usage, so one sheet of plywood completed everything for the lid.
Paint was bought elsewhere on a clearance/mistint, for $10. Luckily he was able to find a color that matched quite well with our yard and area.
He spent $50 at RONA Home & Garden ,$10 for the paint, and about $10 in other items were just found in the shop that he had saved over time, from other projects. 
We also loved that they accepted Air Miles as we are reward point collectors as well.

Here you can see the before and after pictures.
