College Dorm Room Giant Solo Cup Trash Can

College Dorm Room Giant Solo Cup Trash Can

Our son, Matt is packing his car to move to college. Matt and his friend, Mark made a trip to IKEA to pick up Matt’s bed frame. As the boys were zipping through IKEA they came across the $1.99 plastic trash cans that come in frosted white, black and red. Mark thought that the red one looked like a Solo Drinking Cup. When Matt got home he raided my office for a can of white spray paint and of course I had one. He then turned this trash can into a Giant Solo Cup Trash Can.

I thought it was such a great idea that I just had to share it with you!

First with blue painters tape, he taped of 3/4″ around the rim of the can

Then he sprayed the inside and outer edge of the can with spay paint made for plastic surfaces

Let dry, remove the tape and there you have it a Giant Solo Cup Trash Can!

Sorry, my sandy face boy but the lazy days of summer are over! But like all good things it must come to an end. Good Luck at San Jose State University this school year and be the “Pike Man” I know you can be!!!

Love Ya,
