Recycling box stores -so expensive!

Really I need a store for 4 recycling boxes - but they are coming out as around £250 or more , the cheapest I have seen so far is this 3 box one from Tesco ( prepared to restack the boxes) myself to save £150 . Is this going to be easy for me to assemble myself with no woodwork experience? Any advice on a reputable supplier. It's going straight outside my kitchen door so will be very visible in the garden. It's going on a patio so DIY with trellis is not possible ( and beyond my wood working skills. It needs to disguise my recycling boxes which are bright red so a real eyesore! many thanks

It would be cheaper put up some trellis to screen or a trough with small shrubs in.

Thanks. Yes I think I need a diy solution as the ready made cupboards are really very expensive for a. Bit of wood!

We made a frame to hide our 3 wheelie bins ( green, paper,waste ).
We made the frame so a small portion opened for access, then we attached split bamboo, then put v. large oblong planters in front with tall ornamental grasses and trailing plants.
A smaller version could work for you.

you could try a small log store, with the a big enough gap to access the boxes, but with it facing your fence, use the wooden back to attach wires and grow climbers up them? something like this: www.amazon.co.uk/Woodside-Treated-Wooden-Garden-Storage/dp/B01G8THB8A/ref=sr_1_5?keywords=log+store+outdoor&tag=mumsnetforum-21&ie=UTF8&qid=1518852152&sr=8-5

Ifailed that looks good !
Or trellis as others have suggested ,if you can fix the trellis of course .

We all have millions of huge wheelie bins round here (SE London ) and they are such a blight .

So many of the bin stores that people have bought seem really flimsy and are soon listing and broken .Purpose built ones seem to fare better .
