Frequent OPaaT readers (all three of you) won't be surprised to hear I took a little inspiration from Pinterest on this one. Specifically this great idea to use a fun patterned piece of fabric. Love it.
So I armed myself with a 50% off coupon and headed to JoAnn Fabrics where I found an awesome Dwell Studios pattern in just the right colors. First I had to quick hem the edges for a nice, crisp look, and I also sewed a pocket across the bottom.
The I took my stapler and carefully attached the fabric to the bottom of the shelf in the Laundry Room, as close to the wall as I could get. I made sure to staple the underside so that they wouldn't show.
The only problem is that my fabric had a huge lump in it. Here's a close up.

But we're still not done, besides sweeping that floor, I still need to create a solution for the rug, fix the wall that got pretty dented from the Big Blue removal, and work on a few other accessories. But it's coming together. You know you'll be the first to see the progress. (Like you could stop me from spilling it all in painstaking detail.
