DIY Magazine Hangers
It’s time for my second ever DIY post. We’re discussing how to store your magazines in the best way (in my opinion).
So. Back story. A year or so ago I saw this guest bedroom on A Beautiful Mess and knew I wanted to have the EXACT SAME magazine storage in our guest bedroom. Fast forward a year…I finally got it done.
Let’s get into it.
Step one: Go to Barnes & Noble and pick out some of your favorite magazines.
Then run by Anthropologie and pick out some (slight pricey) drawer pulls. Hello, $10 elephant head. But it’s so fun.
Now borrow you husband/dad/grandpa/boyfriend’s drill (if you own your own drill, more power to you!). Get a piece of scrap board to figure out the size of the hole you need for each drawer pull. The hole should be slightly smaller than the screw attached to the drawer pull. Each of my drawer pulls had different sized screws attached to them, so it took a couple tries to find the right size hole to drill out.
Once you’ve figured out the size drill bit you need, drill 3 evenly spaced holes into your wall. If you’re smart, you can find a stud…I didn’t, but the wall was able to support the weight of the drawer pull + hanger + magazine.
Screw in your drawer pulls and hang your hangers.
Add the magazines.
Then do a close-up shot of the hamburger mag.
And that’s it!
Thanks for entertaining my desire to be more crafty. It’s nice to step out of the kitchen every once in awhile. See my first DIY post here. Back to food tomorrow!
