This sweet kid-art display is also a functional spot to hang all the stuff you need to grab as you go -- everything from backpacks to dog leashes to reusable totes for the supermarket. Your little Picassos can customize canvases with portraits and pictures that serve as guides to what goes where.

What you'll need

  • 8- by 10-inch pre-primed stretched canvas (ours cost $6.50 at Michaels)
  • 4 white 1/2-inch screws
  • 2 single robe hooks
  • Drywall anchor screws (or appropriate anchoring hardware for your walls)

How to make it

  1. Decorate the canvas (we used crayons and watercolors, plus marker for outlines).

  2. With the 1/2-inch screws, attach the hooks through the canvas's lower corners into the wood frame.

  3. Insert the anchor screws through the top corners and the wood frame until their tips protrude out the back. Use them to mark the placement of the anchor holes.

  4. Gear Gallery: Step 4

    Install the anchor screws or hardware, then attach the canvas firmly to the wall.
