This space is in our laundry room, but it's the perfect place to hold all the kids' school stuff. It's right off of the garage so as they bust through the door after school they have to pass it.
The hooks are from Home Depot. The file/paper holders are from Pick Your Plum. And the letters & fabrics are from Joann's.
I started with this rug that I found at a rummage sale.
I love the design and colors. So I went to Joann's and purchased some coordinating fabrics and letters for our kids' names.
To wrap the letters with the fabric, I coated them with Mod Podge (made for fabric).
Then I placed the letter on the fabric (glue side down)
And started wrapping like a present, gluing as I went under and on top of the fabric.
Some of the edges were not pretty
but I tried to keep those on the back.
Keep wrapping and gluing until it's completely covered.
UPDATE: I've received a lot of questions about the galvanized, metal wall pockets. They are approximately 10"x5"x3". They are no longer available to purchase through Pick Your Plum, but here are some alternatives:
Metal Wire Wall Pocket from Amazon
Metal Cubby with Chalkboard from Target
Wire Baskets from World Market
Metal Mail Holder from Amazon
