From the blogger: "Wallpaper is great for transforming a mundane kitchen bin / trash can into something better looking. You can make it blend into your decor or even turn in it into a statement piece. Either way it will be a great improvement on what can normally be a bit of an eyesore in the kitchen, the trash can. This is a really easy project anyone can do. There are also so many fantastic designer wallpapers around. The hardest thing about this revamp is going to be deciding on what wallpaper to use."
