    hehe, that's just what I was thinking, my bin gets so full of crap it needs a bin liner in it, having a plastic bag in this bin would kind of ruin the effect, it's really more of a waste paper only type of bin...but yeah....koooool!

    haha I got this one at IKEA also, the thing is that It never clicked to me that it looked like the OSX trashcan, it just appealed to me...hehe this is cool. Part of the problem is that I dont have a working OSX system :( or else i would have noticed probably

    I only put "trash" in this bin, so no gum problems for me.

    When i mean it will go with my bedroom, it will go after i have painted the walls white, laminated the floor (maybe buy a glass work table) and removed EVERY other peice of furniture from this room.

    I have a fitted wardrobe and drawers and they are getting ripped out to be replaced by a black metal bar going across the room to hang my clothes up. I never did understand the need for more doors inside a room. Infact i have removed the doors today and now just have wardrobe bearing all.

    At the end of it all, i'll have is this trashcan, a mattress (yes just a mattress for a bed), a laptop, the metal bar and some sort of hammock for my underwear. I want this room to represent simplicity.

    Recently i have started to hate clutter and it seems strange but also having alot of "stuff".

    I use to have and second PC, TV, Hi Fi and various other stuff. Since i got the laptop i managed to replace everything with it.

    I'll show pictures at some point when its finished. I'm getting white paint later this week.

    Anyway i'm going off topic here.

    hehe, I know I have one of those type trash cans next to my desk and tons of junk is seeping through the holes on the side. I think I will try the bag idea.

    i believe a brushed metal look would be more appropriate.

    Consult villains' hideouts in early James Bond movies for ideas. ;)

    Well unless Cracked Butter is joking, he's selling. They'd be a good eBay item, putting them in the Apple computer section.

    Well, I'll try to do a store search and see what pops up.

    Edit: lol. Not a damn one even close to Louisiana.

    you could always take a picture of your trash-can and make it your trash icon.

    You would have to be quite bored though...

    Ikea sells online since there aren't that many stores. You should be careful what you buy though. The items marked möbelfakta (sp?) are of better quality, and higher price. I have several pieces from as far back as 1988 and they're still in great condition.

    I bought my wastebasket at Target along with a pencil cup and letter sorter made from the same mesh.

    You can also find them at Bed, Bath, and Beyond and Linens and Things.
