Also, once you get each side done... bend it in a little further. That way when you weight the mesh while it dries it stays flush. On my 2nd attempt when I weighted it, it pulled away from the glue points.

Next time I pull my plastics I'll post a pic of the inside.

JetKillr: Sounds like a neat idea, post some pics when you get it done. I just verified w/ my gf, that the trash can wasn't from Target... it was IKEA: http://www.ikea.com/PIAimages/50503_PE147176_S4.jpg It's was much sturdier then the gutter mesh idea. Holds it's shape pretty well.

ikea is kinda far for me but imma hit up target and walmart. i want it to be pretty sturdy since im going for support as well and the trash can mesh looks better and stronger than this i got : /
