Bunk bed storage pocket

Daniel and Noah have decided to share a room and Daniel has moved into the top bunk in Noah's room. He needed a place to store his book, glasses and bits and pieces.

I bought this plastic pocket at the dollar store for $2. (Um ... "Cake server"?? I'm confused.)

It was a nightmare to get the sticker residue off and I tried all sorts of methods - in the end soaking it in oil for a few hours worked.

I then cut off the hook part with a craft knife.

You know how when you buy a tote bag you sometimes get a shoulder strap with it? We never use them and had a few lying around so I cut one, singed the edges with a lighter and sewed on some velcro.

Luckily there is a slit in the bottom of the pocket (you're supposed to be able to hang them in a row from each other) and I threaded the strap through it.

I fastened the strap around the railing of the bunk bed.

Here's how it looks from the front. (Yes, his bed is unmade. Just keepin' it real.)

A perfect spot to stash Daniel's goodies!
