Shutters before

I needed a garbage can for my bar area, something a little different, and this was perfect!

I forgot to mention that I had to add a piece of wood in the bottom since these shutters were on the taller side. That way the bag didn't fall down through. Now it rests nicely on the piece of wood and the flaps wrap the perimeter of the garbage can lip. It's working out great. I chose to put the louver adjustments on the inside, so notches had to be cut out for those on the piece of wood, but you could always reverse the shutters and put those on the outside. :)
