I love a good challenge. Especially when I know I can get it done fairly quickly.
My sweet aunt needed a magazine holder for her bathroom. Because ya’ll have to have something to read while you’re in there.
She sent me a few pictures of things she had picked up at the store.
While those are cute options, it’s just not homemade. And I am all about homemade.
So, she asked me if I could make her something.
Here was my quick sketch/idea.
Yes, the brown thing is a magazine! I said it was a quick sketch!
Then I figured some dimensions.
You can really make this any size you want. If it’s going to be for a living room, maybe make it a tad bigger. Or if you want it to hold more magazines, a tad wider.
Once I had the dimensions, I cut all the pieces, used some wood glue and a nail gun and put it together.
Once everything was set, I used some stain and a polycrylic finish.
Isn’t it just lovely?
And here it is in her bathroom!
An easy weekend project, turned into something so simple and sweet. And useful.
