Shown with another 'trash can' that I made from found pipes as the scrap yard this black 'trash can' is certainly unique and not likely to roll away. ITS NEARLY 38 POUNDS. Yes I know I'm crazy, but I could not pass up this pipe when I saw it in the big tall heap at the scrap yard. It was filthy greasy gross and very uneven/rough around the edges. I ground it down smooth, added a recycled aluminum 'bottom' to it, removed all the grease and painted the inside with 2 coats of rust converter and 2 coats of a hard matte finish.

Perfect for holding office trash in your industrial setting, storing collectible baubles or use it as a planter stand for tall indoor plants!

Frequently asked questions about PaulaArt

I stock up on old pipes so I can make several utensil holders for home/office use. For large quantities I offer discounts. Contact me if you have any questions.
Keep in mind that just because many of my pieces are heavy metal, things can still break if dropped on the floor. I nut and bolt objects, epoxy them and weld. (even heat welded objects can break if hit just right) I take great care when shipping to protect your art through transit. I am not responsible for what happens to it after you get it! If a pet or child knocks something over and it crashes to the ground and breaks it does not reflect poor craftmanship on my end! Also, keep in mind that I am working with found materials that are aged and in many cases pretty rusted ~ if you leave them outside you can expect more rust over time due to humidity/wetness. If using indoors keep away from sink areas or where water is present.
If over time you notice any rust forming that doesn't bode well with you, GENTLY sand the area and spray or brush on an oil based varnish/polyurethane. Heavily rusted pieces,kitchen & jewelry holders are usually painted and/or varnished twice.
For orders returned to me because of failure to pick up package due to not wanting to pay duty/custom taxes (if applicable) or for any other reason such as incorrect address etc, I will refund for the item less 15% and less shipping fee.
