DIY Home Decor – Magazine Holder

Hey there!  To me, nothing quite beats drinking a cup of coffee and reading through magazines in the fall!  I love fall, fall decor and fall decor magazines and I’m loving this DIY Magazine rack that I made to display magazines in our family room!

DIY-Magazine-HolderIt has a lot of my decor favorites, gray, rope and chalkboard paint!  It was super easy to make, all you need is a drill and it cost me under $20!

This is also the project that I was inspired to make for the Scotch Blue, Ready, Set, Paint Blog Hop Party!  Oh, I should also mention we are holding a giveaway for a $200 Home Depot Gift Card!  More on that later!  Whoop 🙂

So, here’s how I made the DIY Magazine Holder!

BoardsI started by purchasing a 1×16 @ 4ft. project panel and a 1×12 @4 ft.

measurementsCut 3 – 1×12 @ 15″.  If you don’t have a saw, just have your hardware store make these cuts!

Rustoleum-GraniteNext, I spray painted the 1×16 and 1×12’s with Rust-Oleum Granite.  Spray paint the front and backs of the 1×12’s.

cup-hooks-and-hingesI also purchased a package of 7/8″ cup hooks and a 3 sets of 2 1/2″ hinges.

installing-hingesI installed 2 hinges on the back of each 1×12, 1 1/2 inches from each side.

installing-dividersNext, I flipped the 1×12’s over and attached them to the 1×16 with the hinges.  I marked the center of the 1×16 and attached the middle board first.  Then, I just eyeballed the top and bottom boards.

predrill-holesNow, using a 10mm drill bit, I drilled 1 hole in the top corner of each 1×12.  I put mine 1″ from the top and side.

predrill-for-cup-hooksNow, using a 1/16″ drill bit, I drilled through the holes in the 1×12 through to the 1×16 board.  This is just a small hole for the cup hooks so you don’t need to drive the bit very far.

install-cup-hooksTo follow up, just screw a cup hook in to each hole.  Finish twisting with the open end of the cup  hook facing the top of the 1×16.

Sisal-Rope

tie-knot-in-ropeI purchased a roll of Sisal Rope and cut 6 14″ pieces and tied a knot at the end of each piece.

MY LATEST VIDEOS

attach-rope-to-cup-hooksThread each piece of rope through the hole in the 1×12, tie a knot at the other end (I put my knots 5″ apart) and hook the middle of the new knot onto each cup hook.

Now for some fun!

mark-for-chalk-labelI decided to put chalkboard labels on each magazine holder.  To do this, I marked off a 5×3 rectangle, right in the middle of each board, with a pen and a ruler.

Edge-Lock Now, using ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tapetape-off-for-labelsI taped off around the 5×3 rectangle.

extra-tapeand added more tape to prevent overspray!

Rust-Oleum-Chalkboard-Spray-PaintI sprayed two coats of Rust-Oleum Chalkboard spray paint in the middle of each rectangle

Spray-Chalkboard-Paintlet it dry

peel-tape-offand peeled the tape away!

DistressingAs an after-thought, I decided to distress the edges.  This step would be best to do before you add the rope and hardware but I didn’t know if I wanted it distressed at that time.  I used my Ryobi Corner Cat to distress every edge.

That was it!

    My husband and I just constructed a craft corner for our girls with a craft table, peg board, etc. I wanted some art portfolios where they store finished projects, but I didn’t want to clutter the craft table or shelves. By enlarging the dimensions, this would work well for hanging art files in the corner. Thank you!

    You can also use a strip of recycled leather as the hinge. Just glue it on to both pieces. This will stop the ‘fall through’ also. My Dad made a notebook for me when i was in 6th grade. He made it of plywood and leather hinges. It was cool then and is still cool now, although its an antique now!

  3. Lindsay SHinn on September 10, 2013 at 11:00 am

    I love this!! gray and chalkboards are two of my favorite things 🙂

  4. Jill Wilhelm on September 9, 2013 at 12:59 pm

    I refinish furniture also…love all of your projects! So of course I love to paint old finds but painting anything makes me happy and since I am moving into a new place there are LOTS of projects to do!

  5. Collette Whitley on September 9, 2013 at 11:55 am

    I love this idea. I want to make it to put my magazines by my bath tub.

  6. stegel on September 8, 2013 at 8:28 pm

    I like big home projects; new flooring, new deck (building it now). I am not always crafty, but projects like this make me want to be.

  7. Cara Allen Martin on September 8, 2013 at 7:26 pm

    I love this! I’m going to make it ASAP!! I love your blog and sometimes feel like a stalker! Haha. I’ve made so many things I’ve found on your blog.

  8. Mark&Melyssa on September 8, 2013 at 6:07 pm

    Mine is definitely a kitchen island I made with a friend! Go Kreg Jig!

  9. Amanda Bruce on September 8, 2013 at 1:16 pm

    This is such a creative idea! I can’t wait to try it out. Thank you for the giveaway! 🙂

  10. D Wheeler on September 8, 2013 at 8:34 am

    I wasn’t to make this to sort my kids school papers and another one for the mail! Awesome!

  11. Sara Parten on September 7, 2013 at 7:39 pm

    Love this! Super easy and adorable!

  12. Mary on September 7, 2013 at 11:55 am

    Love this project would to give it a try…thanks for the giveaway!

  13. Kathy Gehrig on September 7, 2013 at 6:18 am

    I have the perfect spot for this project! My favorite most of all is the DIY Dining Table for only $65!!!

  14. Toni Kwaiser on September 6, 2013 at 6:50 pm

    One of the cutest things you’ve made! I think I can even do this 🙂

  15. Katelyn Rankin on September 6, 2013 at 11:20 am

    I just finished making a framed chalkboard (with the help of the kreg jig – best tool EVER!) that I want to add some type of holder to, so this is perfect! My favorite DIY is anything I can build or make from scratch. I love the challenge and satisfaction of knowing I did it and got what I wanted within my price range. I’ve always been “crafty” but you Shanty ladies have helped give me the courage and the know-how to try things I was always scared to before. Thanks for always sharing!

  16. Corey Rollison on September 6, 2013 at 6:23 am

    excited to make this some day soon!

  17. Katie Brooks on September 6, 2013 at 6:22 am

    I really want to make your coffee table on wheels, but paint it a vibrant color!

  18. AutumnOstlund on September 5, 2013 at 10:20 pm

    Cute! I think I need one of these… I just need to figure out where to put it!

  19. Leesa Miller on September 5, 2013 at 10:19 pm

    That magazine holder is such a great idea. Something useful and decorative too. And it looks pretty easy to make too.

  20. Deanna on September 5, 2013 at 8:40 pm

    what a great idea !!

  21. Eva Smith on September 5, 2013 at 8:00 pm

    Love it!

  22. Linda Petteys on September 5, 2013 at 7:08 pm

    I love the DIY Wall Art – Pallet Design – I would love to try it myself and then of course admire it every day!

  23. Darla on September 5, 2013 at 6:40 pm

    I LOVE anything organizing DIY! I need this giveaway so badly! I would make a Command/Mudroom in my Foyer!

  24. Eliska Schneider on September 5, 2013 at 5:50 pm

    Did you hang it with sawtooth hangers?

  25. Tyann Corbett on September 5, 2013 at 4:27 pm

    So cute!! Love the color and how the rope is tied (hehe) into the whole thing!

  26. meganbullington on September 5, 2013 at 4:12 pm

    I love all of your ideas! My kids and I are tackling the Mason Jar Planter this week!

  27. jenny on September 5, 2013 at 3:56 pm

    I love transforming a room with paint!

  28. John S on September 5, 2013 at 3:46 pm

    My wife would absolutely love this. Thanks for the easy instructions on how to make it! Surely I have some scrap pine that would work for this!

  29. Mike on September 5, 2013 at 3:24 pm

    Great, another thing I MUST make. Nice work!

  30. Beth Minch Dover on September 5, 2013 at 3:00 pm

    Love this! So far, my fave DIY build has been Ana White’s laundry basket dressers – I made 2 that serve as my laundry room DIY counter to hold my drill, battery chargers, and is a nice work surface when it’s clean 🙂

  31. Marion on September 5, 2013 at 2:43 pm

    Very cute – just pinned a magazine holder today – but I’m loving the rope on this one!

  32. Rory Sedlacek Reding on September 5, 2013 at 2:04 pm

    This is the cutest and most functional idea ever!!! Love Home Depot!!!

  33. Janet on September 5, 2013 at 1:48 pm

    I just made your pegboard last week for my tools and now working on the kreg workbench. So everything I make of yours becomes my fav….

  34. Theresa McClure on September 5, 2013 at 1:46 pm

    I made the tilt out trash can holder…Love it. Going to make another one for the recycle now!

  35. Laura M on September 5, 2013 at 12:59 pm

    I can see this holder on my patio – where I love to read
    Thank you

  36. Melissa on September 5, 2013 at 12:55 pm

    My favorite DIY project was my dining room table – it turned out exactly how I wanted.And what perfect timing for this post! I literally just picked up a new desk off Craigslist to redo and we may be needing some inbox-es on the side. This will work perfectly! 🙂 Thanks!

  37. Terah Harris on September 5, 2013 at 12:29 pm

    I’m soooo trying this!

  38. Linda Crandall on September 5, 2013 at 12:29 pm

    Cool

    Love this! You could even make it for kids’ papers or mail or bills. Love all your tutorials!

  40. Mindi on September 5, 2013 at 11:33 am

    This is such an awesome project! I would even say one of my faves, right now!

  41. Lucy on September 5, 2013 at 10:28 am

    Great idea! I especially like the price… under $20!!

  42. Angie Thomas on September 5, 2013 at 9:17 am

    I love everything on the website. I have gotten so many ideas and made several things for my new home. I pick a new room to remodel just so I can use the ideas i found here. Thank you!

  43. Alissa Lines on September 5, 2013 at 8:29 am

    I was just thinking this morning how I need to organize and de-clutter all of my paper! This is perfect. I never would have thought to add hinges. Thanks so much for the tutorial.

  44. Lisa Baumgarten on September 5, 2013 at 6:43 am

    That would be perfect for my daughter room for the odd size books.

  45. Elise on September 5, 2013 at 6:22 am

    This would be great for my teenage son for all his papers!

  46. Michelle Anchel on September 5, 2013 at 6:21 am

    I just finished making a table for my two boys. I really would love to make a bed for my oldest son. He has grown out of his toddler bed too soon for me. *sigh*.

  54. Moriah@simplegifts on September 4, 2013 at 7:15 pm

    I have so many magazines, I might just have to try this! I love painting just about anything I can to give something a new look!

  55. Tran on September 4, 2013 at 7:14 pm

  66. Elizabeth Hoskins on September 4, 2013 at 3:18 pm

    This looks great! I don’t know how y’all come up with so many great ideas!

  67. Alyssa Walters on September 4, 2013 at 3:01 pm

    Anything that I get to use my kreg jig on is my “favorite” project! LOVE THAT TOOL!

  68. Maria Rosales- Dean on September 4, 2013 at 2:34 pm

    Adorable! I love making planter boxes! They are so expensive just to buy, why not make your own and then you have something you like and proud of!

  69. Tammy S. Marshall on September 4, 2013 at 2:33 pm

    My personal Fav is the farmhouse table..you did an excellent job on that..as you do with all of your projects..love your site!! 😉

  70. Darby Tish on September 4, 2013 at 2:33 pm

    I painted my couch over the weekend. I may have a new furniture painting addiction.

  71. mellissa on September 4, 2013 at 2:27 pm

    I love all the projects just need to find some time to start on them

  72. Julie Smith Atwood on September 4, 2013 at 2:22 pm

    I love this! I am going to make it for a homework station 🙂 Thanks for the directions 🙂

  73. Jeannie Chute Welter on September 4, 2013 at 2:21 pm

  74. Melanie Knowlton Baggett on September 4, 2013 at 2:19 pm

  75. amy425 on September 4, 2013 at 2:00 pm

    I am loving DIY TV stands right now. I could use the $ for my next build!

  76. Jaylyn on September 4, 2013 at 1:48 pm

    My favorite projects have become DIY furniture projects! Love starting with natural boards and ending with a beautiful piece that I couldn’t have found in a store!

  77. Sarah E. on September 4, 2013 at 1:46 pm

    I don’t know if I have a favorite! I’m loving little things right now because they’re quick and easy! I love all the outdoor wood projects that have been posted lately! love them!

  78. Jeff Wright on September 4, 2013 at 1:45 pm

    Nice!

    You mention using a 7/8″ drill bit to make a small hole for the cup hooks to thread into. I think you may have the bit size wrong cause 7/8″ is a very large bit. I’m betting you meant 7/64″. 😉

    • Shanty2Chic on September 4, 2013 at 6:13 pm

      Hey Jeff! Thanks so much:) You are so right! It was a 1/16 drill bit. The cup hooks are 7/8″ 😉 Thank you for catching that!

  79. Lisa@akawest.com on September 4, 2013 at 1:19 pm

    My favorite project is any that involves items found on the curb.

  80. Renae Johansen on September 4, 2013 at 1:18 pm

    Loving your blog, now that I’ve found it. Already completed 3 of your projects and starting on a 4th this weekend. Now, to decide where my new magazine rack will go?! 🙂

  81. Jessica Judyski on September 4, 2013 at 1:16 pm

    I love this! I don’t have a favorite project though. I’m pretty sure I love them all. Ever since I discovered Shanty2Chic last year, I think I have pinned every.single.thing that you girls have come up with. Loveee it all <3

  82. amaiken on September 4, 2013 at 1:16 pm

    Adorable! I love making planter boxes! They are so expensive just to buy, why not make your own and then you have something you like and something that you are proud of!
