DIY Felt Wall Organizer

I read a lot of magazines. I still enjoy the hardcopy. Sitting down with a cup of coffee, reading about home decor trends. Well… almost always reading about home decor. When it’s not home decor, it’s organization. Why am I so bad at that?! Anyone else? Since I’m always looking for ways organize, I thought I’d share this quick DIY with everyone.

I LOVE the look of this piece. I would put it on any wall in my home. And look at that paint colour?! Who doesn’t love that Damask against the grey felt!


Thick felt  – I used Charcoal Kunin Felt!
Paint – I used Damask by Fusion Mineral Paint
Wooden frame
Staple gun

I found an old frame at the thrift store. You want to find one with a bit of space behind it so that the felt has room to sit. I painted it with this beautiful Damask Fusion Mineral Paint. Seriously. I’m in love with this colour! This piece and these colours are going to migrate into my home office shortly.

You need thick felt because you need it to stand up against the papers and magazines you throw in the pockets. The Kunin felt is perfect for this project!

You want to cut three pieces of felt so that they wrap around the board that was previously behind the glass in your frame. If you just had cardboard, you will want to cut a piece of playwood to fit inside. Simple wrap the pieces of felt around the edges and staple them in place. [note: you may have to cut your plywood a bit if it doesn’t fit with the felt in place].

One of my layers was a little bit too small and I could feel a slight prick of staple on the other side, so I just added another tiny piece of plywood. Put the board back into the frame and you’re done!

That’s all there is too it! Accessorize it with some gold paper clips and you’re ready to organize all those loose papers and lists.
