Cotton Canvas Cover


Product Information

Add our Cotton Canvas Cover to an InterMetro Shelving solution to create a freestanding wardrobe or storage armoire. The breathable canvas is made from thicker, more durable cotton than is commonly found elsewhere. The cover fits easily over an 18" x 48" x 74-1/2" InterMetro Shelving solution - with casters or without. It's a perfect fit for our InterMetro Garment Rack, Starter Unit, Kitchen Shelf Unit or Media Center.

  • Made from 12-ounce cotton canvas, an easily renewable resource
  • Full-length two-way zippered closure
  • Features hooks to hold sides open



  • 18" x 48" x 74" h

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Could be perfect. Design flaw. Odd. The front door fabric panels both feature a heavy hook so the panels could open fully & hook to the side for full open access, BUT the 2-way zipper always leave the panels attached, so it never gets there. Instead, the upper hook pulls the top of the front panel down bubbling the front. Still, the price and fabric quality is wonderful compared to me making a cover w/my time & fabric cost. Down the road I will replace the zipper to a jacket type OR add a Velcro tab behind.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fish sack This cover works fine, but when I took it out of the package it smelled . . . strange. Like fish? Not moldy or mildewy, but fishy, in chemically way. The smell seems to be fading (slowly) and nothing that a deodorizing spray can't fix, but thought I would warn other purchasers who might be sensitive to smell. I also found that the cover was too tall for my shelves (my fault, I should have measured), but it's fairly easy to tuck the bottom underneath and pin the canvas to itself so it doesn't drag on the floor. On the upside: it looks as advertised, is sturdy and well structured, and not terribly ugly. I might try to steam it to get creases and wrinkles out (and maybe the smell!).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Large Garment Rack Cover I've been searching online for covers to fit over my Trinity shelves and was pleasantly surprised when I found this cover onine through the Container Store. It is well made of thick material. I purchased it for my Trinity 18X48" rolling racks with shelves in my kitchen and it fits perfectly in depth and width. The length of the cover would have completely covered the wheels but I folded it under to leave the wheels exposed. It helps keep the pots, pans and small applicances I store on those shelve clean and out of site. I will be ordering 4 more for my other Trinity shelves. Thank you Container Store for making these available. Highly recommend from a very satisfied customer!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Customer Service I had to replace the cotton canvas cover at my friend's house because my dog is a chewer and he destroyed their old one. I ordered this product (on sale to boot!) to replace the old one. When I received the product, there were some pink markings on the canvas cover. I called The Container Store and they answered my call right away and were so helpful and sent me another one right away, without any hassle on my part. This product was a good product and I would buy again, but what will keep me coming back to The Container Store is their superior customer service! Thank you!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from works well Works well but the bottom is a little tight. Pulls when trying to close and hard on one to completely unzip. I would definitely buy this again, even with these issues. Sturdy material.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beware mildew and mold The area where we use these wardrobes was damp for a few days, and the cotton canvas covers molded all over. Natural cotton sounds like a good thing, but a synthetic fabric would not have supported mold growth. They'll be going back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cotton Canvas Cover Container Store sells it for the 3-foot Intermetro garment rack, but it fits the Alera 3-foot garment rack I have just as well. I like it a lot because: I can open it from the top or bottom, It's natural colored cotton, so it breathes, keeps the dust off my stuff. The only thing I was hoping for that this doesn't have is a bottom. Then it would be pest-proof too. But the cover CS has that does have a bottom is really for the garage or basement, not your bedroom. This has a much more finished look. The other garment racks that have covers with bottoms are not as nice as this one.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DON'T WASH THE COVER! Don't wash the cover unless you want an ill-fitting cover that is reminiscent of Denise Huxtable's Gordon Gartrell knockoff shirt. The covers were washed in cold water and line dried. There was no reason for the extreme shrinkage. The top no longer sits flush, the length is a minimum 5-6" short all around, and the paneled zipper flaps are pulled so tight in area that it bubbles. I am so dissatisfied. Pre-wash, I thought the canvas covers were great and was recommending to everyone. Post-wash, I think it is a poor product and shame on The Container Store for not noting that the product would shrivel up upon touching water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Quality This is the quality you expect from the container store; Thick durable canvas, commercial style zipper, overall this is a very nice accessory for the metro shelving. I would like to see them offer this in Nylon as well for those of us who like to use this in more of an industrial setting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Solution My daughter was sorting through toys the grandchildren were less interested in yet reluctant to give up. She decided to store them on InterMetro® Shelving but wanted them out of sight. I suggested the Large Cotton Canvas Cover and had it shipped to her. “It is the perfect transition for the children since they have easy access to the toys yet frees them to move on. It is well made and looks great” was her comment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product for organizing I love these covers. They went on sale so I bought 3 extras. They are fantastic for hiding all the clutter on the steel shelves in my laundry room and in my storage room.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost great Just wish it covered the bottom so that nothing (dust, insects, etc.) can get inside.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Covers Covers the shelves very nicely. I love the double zippers and the hook at the top to hold back the cover when opened. Nice for keeping items inside clean. Best to order them at the same time if ordering more than one because the batch color might be a little different. Other than that, I would definitely order these again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Would have been great if......... I purchased this cover with the Metro Commercial Garment Rack knowing that it would be a bit big. I didn't realize how much too big! I had to go with the Metro rack because of my space restriction. This seems like it would be great paired with the appropriate frame. Sorry, but I will be returning this and hoping The Container Store will have another cover that will work for me.

Community Q&A

Can you wash this?

Asked by: kd245
This cover stinks so bad that it needed washing - airing it out was not enough. I washed it in cold water and hung out to dry and it was unbelievable how much it shrunk. Do not wash and do not order if bad orders bother you.

Is this cover thick enough to block all light to the shelves?

does the canvas also enclose the bottom of the rack?

I am wondering if this cover is open at the bottom, or if it is designed to cover the bottom of the rack as well. I would like to use the rack/cover to store some nice dresses, and I want to make sure insects will not be able to get inside the cover.
Asked by: spakatieo
The bottom of this cover is open.

Can the cover be dry cleaned?

My basement became humid while we were out of town, and now my covers are a bit moldy. I see in the comments and reviews that washing does not go well. Has anyone tried dry cleaning them?

Will this fit over rack shelving units built with your 36" wide shelves?

Your InterMetro shelves come in 36" and 48". How well will the cover fit over the 36"? And if not, do you have covers for that size?
Asked by: Keds
While this cover will go over the shelves, it will not fit, and it will be saggy. Unfortunately, at this time we do not carry a 36" wide cover.

Would this cover fit the folding commercial rack?

I would really like to purchase the folding commercial rack on casters due to the easy folding option. Would this cover fit on that rack? I wouldn't need it to b perfect. Just big enuf
Asked by: NonaMuss
This cover will not fit over the Commercial Garment Rack, it is meant to fit over our InterMetro shelving.
