Master of disguise: Nick Staley and his bin prototype
It's certainly one way of brightening up the boring old rubbish bin.
British inventor Nick Staley has created a secret shed for his bin, which doubles as a flower display.
Mr Staley, 38, said his wife ‘found it embarrassing’ to keep their bin so close to their front door, but with no side passage – and Mr Staley having spent more than a year landscaping their back garden – they had only one option.
'I decided to hide it,’ he said. ‘I looked at the bin covers on the market and was disappointed to find that none of them are very good – some look worse than the bin itself. So I decided to make my own one.’
