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 5 out of 5 by from Used with InterMetro Wardrobe Cart I needed a good solution for talent wardrobe in our production office. But I didn't want to look at a rack of clothes every day. Covering the wardrobe cart with the canvas cover protects the clothes and keeps the office looking tidy. Win-Win.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cotton Canvas Cover The Container Store was the only place that carried a replacement canvas cover that fits perfectly over the 18"x48"x72" storage shelves, and they are made to last, too! These heavy-duty covers are perfect for hiding clutter on the shelving units while keeping everything clean. This is the second canvas cover I purchased, and I wouldn't hesitate to buy more in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Cover & Storage Rack Ever Not cheap...but excellent for storage. Sturdy and carries a lot of weight and easy to move. Also easy to assemble.

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 This is truly a purchase that really works I love it when a plan comes together and works and this one works. I needed to get my extensive seed bead collection organized into a workable situation. I purchased a tall metal shelving unit on wheels to house the organized beads. BUT this was in the garage SO I needed to protect them from dust . Walla! The zippered clothes closet cover was ordered. Wow! It works PERFECTLY. My beads and jewelry tools are kept in a protected place. It looks neat in the garage and I am a happy camper. I will be purchasing more of this combo. I love it! !

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.

Does this work with Metro shelving (industrial, not intermetro)???

Asked by: Lucey
No, the Cotton Canvas Cover does not fit Metro Commercial Industrial Shelving only 18" x 48" x 74-1/2" InterMetro Shelving solutions - with casters or without.

Hi, does this item contain an inside rack for hanging items and how sturdy is the rack?

Asked by: Carollou
The Cotton Canvas Cover is simply just a cover it includes hooks to hold sides open. InterMetro Shelving solution - with casters or without is sold separately (link below). Thank you for your question.

Is his a cotton canvas cover for a wardrobe or a complete wardrobe that is covered in cotton canvas

Asked by: Tobro
This is just the cotton cover. Here is the link for both the cover and the steel storage unit.

I am looking at the cotton canvas cover for a rolling clothes rack. Why is there a delivery charge, substantial at that, for just the canvas cover?

Asked by: Anonymous
There should not be an extra ship fee for this product. If you have an Intermetro Shelving Unit in your cart, that could be where the extra fee is coming from.

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.
