I don’t know about you, but I’m glad the weekend is here and I’m ready to see this week in the rear view mirror. And I want to thank SO many of you who sent me wonderful, positive emails! That made my day totally, so thank you so much for that.
I’m adding this post to Wendy at The Shabby Nest’s Frugal Friday party!
You know how I love to decoupage things. I really was on a kick several years ago and stopped for awhile, but there’s just so much you can do with the stuff. Found these cardboard magazine holders at a yardsale, 50 cents for all. Have you priced these lately? You can hardly find a plain one for less than $8 or so. I have a couple of them that I’ve painted to match my office, but I can always use more for my magazine
So, first thing I did was give them a quick spray paint coat of black on the insides making sure to hit the edges too since that would show.
Then I went to Hobby Lobby and bought scrapbook paper to match my office and it was 1/2 off that week. That’s always a plus!
I simply laid the paper on each side, creasing the paper to fit the cardboard and cut it all out with scissors, then glued it on with my Mod Podge. I didn’t even coat the top of the paper, just underneath.
And when they were finished, they looked like this and now I have all this extra magazine storage. These are plenty sturdy for my needs.
And they’re mostly filled up already. I really have to get rid of some of these.
Do you ever actually go back and read old magazines?
I hardly ever do, so I don’t have a legitimate excuse to keep holding onto all of them. What I need to do is cut out the articles and pics I really love and get rid of the rest. I just can’t seem to part with my magazines. Can you?
