Creative Ways to Store Your Magazines. Make a Nice Display of All Your Favorite Issues
Despite the advent of digital magazine content, good old-fashioned paper versions are still around. If you collect your favorite magazines’ issues or just keep some for their useful or inspiring content, than they probably pile up fast enough. Here are creative ways to store your magazines to make a nice or even practical display of them.
1. Use them as furniture
Pile a stack of magazines high against a wall and you have a stand on which to perch a lamp, a potted plant or a vase. Just be sure the stack is sturdy enough that what’s on it won’t topple over.
This way you can easily create a bedside table at your desired height. Just make sure not to aggressively hit the snooze button and topple over your stack.
Instead of investing in a shallow table to place along your window, stack books and magazines and top with lamps, small sculptures, and vases of flowers.
2. Creative ways to store your magazines. Use crates
Crates make up very cheap storing items, that can also offer a fun display.
Turn a crate on its side, fill with magazines, and enjoy! This is a great option for a bedside or end table.
Keep your favorite issues in a rolling crate and have fun pushing it from room to room.
3. Creative ways to store your magazines. Holders
Line magazine holders up along one wall. This is the perfect idea for an empty wall, long hallway, or home office.
Use colorful printed scrapbook paper or wrapping paper to coat your holders or make some yourself out of fabric covered cut cereal boxes for this fun, colorful display.
4. Creative ways to store your magazines. On shelves
Fill up your custom wall unit with strategically placed stacks of magazines to break up framed photos and mementos.
Keep magazines on the bottom shelf, books on the middle shelf, and DVDs on top for an intentionally organized look.
Spice up your walls with custom-made shelves for magazines. Don’t forget to stack art on top for an added cool factor.
