classy composting

Since Husband and I started composting, we've tried different containers, but none worked quite right. So what's the answer? DIY, of course!

This empty kitty litter container was just the ticket — big enough that we wouldn't have to empty it every day, with a tight-fitting lid and a convenient handle.

We learned the long and hard way that acrylic paint doesn't adhere to plastic so well. But between the two of us we applied 4 coats, et voila —


  1. Nice job!!! That looks great!

  2. It looks great but when the paint chips off you might try mac-tac. Something with a splash of red to match your toaster :)
