      Hey, that was how I made my “dinning table” in college. I use a big Rubber
      Main garbage can (new, of course), replace the lid with a big, round piece of
      wood as a table top, and draped a long table cloth over my creation. I had two
      metal fold out chairs I found on big trash day, and spray painted (with two
      cans of Walmart’s 88 cent paint) them to match the cloth. The cloth was also
      trash picked. I had planned to store old text books in there. Since I was a
      med student, I had to keep them instead of selling them back. The next big
      trash day (they did this once a month) I found a neglected, but sturdy metal
      shelf. I have just enough pain to sort of make it looked like it matched. My
      ingenously built dining table/storage unit was still put to good use. I used it
      to stored off season clothes, and my bath towels. It was a true blessing to
      have been able to “gather” up piece of this and that, and come up with a dining
      table, hidden storage area, and well used study desk for less then 10 bucks.

      All this time, I thought I was a genius for that up. Well, they do say great
      minds run alike!
