I made the frame for the cabinet out of old 4x4 scraps of left-over pine sized to fit our pre-existing plastic trash bin. Once the frame was made, I covered it in oak pallet wood that I had on hand. Each slat was run through a planer multiple times for uniform thickness and then squared up on a table saw.
Labor intensive, but free and worth it when I saw the old scraps of oak pop live again. My wife was very pleased when she saw the finished result, even if it was a few days late for her birthday.
