::Backpack, Backpack::

I'm the Backpack
Loaded up with things and nick naks too
Anything that you might need I got inside for you!

Getting ready for another year of Preschool, which means Grungy Galz has to be put on hold for a week or two :0(  Each year we have a project to do that makes my classroom well, grungy! Last year I needed a new backpack rack.  Here's what we started with! 

This a vintage door that we got at an antique store that was going out of business.  A steal for 5 bucks!!  Don't you just love days like that?

Then this is parts of a bench that was just laying around. SEE good thing I'm a hoarder :0)  I also have a box full of old hardware that I always dig in to.   So between my old stuff and trips to Lowe's here's what we made!

Tada! After we made it and put where we wanted Crafty Hubby noticed we covered our light switch!!! UGHHH!  

That's okay...We just added it to our design and happen to find a light switch cover that matched our hooks.  After he made it to "code"??  We were all set to fill it up!

This is what it looks like most of the time :0)  Love it???  We are in the process of making another one!  It will be at our next show!  What color would you like it? 


  1. I love what you did with this door!! Great color, and beautiful functional piece!

    1. Thanks Eileen! Now to get the kids to use it...They rather throw it on the floor ;0)
