how-to: recover a canvas bin | d.i.y. | little free radical

Pin It

I was in search of some bins to coordinate with the decor in my daughters room, but everything I was finding were the wrong shades. I saw several patterns to make your own floating around pinterest & various DIY blogs, but I wanted something guaranteed to be sturdy for a 1 year old - to hold toys like blocks.

I was cleaning out closets when I found a couple of canvas bins I had purchased 8 years ago from The Container Store. I was trying to make up my mind about keeping them or not when I realized they were just a canvas cover attached onto the wire frame with VELCRO! And I had an "ah-ha! moment!" - why not replace the covers on these old bins with different fabric?

I tried it. It worked! and it was pretty easy too! I had 2 of them. it took me under an hour each (photos included).  CLICK HERE to Read More
