I am running in a race to benefit Pancreatic Cancer (Purple Stride) so I am reposting a fun project my friend came up with for my son’s room.
My son loves to play basketball. He plays outside for hours, but still loves to shoot in his room before bed (before school, before homework, before..). The basketball hoop and stand took up alot of floor space and was tipping over (with his ever growing strength). So, my girlfriend came up with this idea! She is an organizational genius! She used a wall mounted bracket to attach just the backboard to the wall. Genius! Wish I could take credit for this idea!
One of the best rewards from this project was it extended the life of this hoop. My son would have quickly outgrown the height of the hoop when it was on the floor. Attaching it to the wall allowed us to place it much higher and extended the fun!
