Materials + Tools

  • medium metal wire storage basket
  • spray paint (in desired color)
  • fabric (in desired pattern)
  • spray adhesive
  • white foam board
  • white hook-and-loop tape
  • (2) metal over-the-door hooks


1: Transform a medium metal wire storage basket with bright spray paint in your desired color. We used an eye-popping coral shade. Let the basket dry completely.

2: Cut a piece of white foam board to fit the bottom of the basket. Note: The bottom of the basket will be the back of the basket once it's hung.

3: Cut a piece of fabric to fit the foam board, making it one inch larger on each side.

4: Add spray adhesive to the back of the fabric, then gently attach to the foam board. Use additional adhesive to wrap the fabric's edges around the back of the board.

5: Add strips of hook-and-loop fastener to the top and bottom of the longest sides. This will make it easy to swap out your storage basket's "backdrop".

6: Attach your fabric board to the bottom (back) of the basket using hook-and-loop tape.

7: Add two metal over-the-door hooks to a door, then hang the basket. Adjust as needed. Note: It works best to use a basket with metal wire on the bottom and sides for this purpose.

8: Cut two strips of hook-and-loop tape to about 12 inches. Attach the strips to the bottom of the basket by looping them through the metal holes.

9: Hang the ironing board by its legs through each loop.
