Magazine Rack Redo

I have a bit of an obsession with magazine racks, especially the old-school wood ones. While I was in Florida a couple of weeks ago, I stumbled across the perfect rack for my guest bathroom.  Yes.  I said BATHROOM.  Every bathroom in my home (other than the kids’ bath) has its own fully-stocked magazine rack.  I don’t know about you guys, but the only privacy I seem to have these days is when I lock myself up in the john.  Why not use the time to catch up on my reading? 🙂

This super sturdy rack caught my eye at a Salvation Army in Wesley Chapel, FL.

Lucky for me it was blue tag day, so I snatched this up for $3.50
Here she is after two coats of Annie Sloan Provence.

I decided not to distress this piece.  I loved it just the way it was.

I used only Clear Wax.
Here it sits, in its new home, the Powder Room, fully stocked with local magazines. Perfect for when our out-of-town guests come to visit.

Magnet Board Revamp

One of the reasons I love fabric is because it is so versatile. You can create or embellish an endless amount of items with glorious fabric. Even a boring old magnet board.

This is what it looked like before.

This project is so simple, you are most likely going to roll your eyes.
All I did was cut my fabric one inch larger than my board, fold around to the back of my board and secure it with hot glue. God bless the hot glue gun!

It was so fast and easy, I even made one for the kids!

There you have it; plain ole magnetic boards turned colorful and unique!
