Magazine Storage


We all have those moments no matter what we are doing where we have a block. Writers block, decorators block, creative block, & so on and so on. In these times we need to be inspired. When I have decorators or DIY block I like going to stores to get inspired,
browsing pinterest, checking out my favorite blogs, but one of my favorites is being inspired by magazines. I love flipping through the pages, reading them in the bath, & there is just something about having a hard copy of a magazine in your hands that is so inspiring.


 I always keep a stack of magazines around like pottery barnBetter Homes & Gardens, Elle Decor, House Beautiful, Country Living, exd. I love browsing through these magazines to get inspired & now these magazines have a lovely place to sit in our home on display & ready to be browsed through. I have found that if I have them out in the open I am more likely to read them as opposed to them being tucked away some where & forgetting about them. Also by seeing them out in the open they can become part of your home decor with their beautiful covers like this pottery barn cover in the photos.


With a wire basket from TJ Maxx {They always seem to have great baskets} an off white paint chip card, & some alphabet stamps which you can purchase for $5  {Here} I created a lovely little home for my inspirational magazines. For the label I cut out an off white paint chip I had into the size of the opening on the basket. & then  I simply stamped with my mini alphabet rubber stamps with the Staz on ink {my favorite stamping ink}. The reason I used the off white color chip for the label was because first of
all I had it lying around & second so the label would not be stark white like a normal sheet of paper. It worked really well!
