Denim Wall Storage

I need more storage. Who doesn't need more storage space? This project solves all my problems in the cutest little way.

People always ask where the inspiration for my crafts come from. The mind of an artist is an intriguing thing; my mind works differently than most. I realized that at a young age when I started taking apart simple household items like curling irons and cassette tapes, just to see how they work. This weeks project came to me while I was thrift shopping. I’m not the thriftiest girl, but I do find tons of inspiration while visiting thrift stores and this time was no different.

I ran across a rack of old denim and knew there had to be a cool craft I could use them for. I purchased a pair then headed to the art store where this idea popped into my head.

    Do you have more innovative ideas for the rest of the jeans? For instance, you could nail or use heavy-duty staples to attach legs to a garage or mudroom wall, making holders for baseball bats or other sports equipment.

      The lower section of the jeans pants leg makes an adorable wine bottle bag. Cut across both sides of one pant leg at the knee. Sew or glue the cut side closed (fold under the cut edges first so it doesn’t show). Turn right side up, slip in your bottle of whatever and tie a ribbon around the jeans and bottle neck with a bow. Done!!

    Did the pocket with the zipper already have it or did you add one?

    Yes, DEFINITELY!!! I'm going to do this on the wall surrounding my vanity mirror I thought that would be a great idea to put lipsticks in. You always have numbers of different makeups there's always one or two different colors.!!! I'm off to the craft store!!
