Magazine Storage

DSC_0598

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!

  1. I keep my decorating magazines in a basket too. I found a wonderful basket at a thrift store that is round and tapered out at the top so they fit perfect and it allows them to kind of fan out…

    Loving how yours look on the shelf. The tag ads a nice touch. That shelf looks pretty cool too. :)

  2. I want some of those type of wire baskets for my craft room! I haven’t checked TJ Maxx, but I most def will =) I love the idea of storing “inspiration” magazines in there too! Great idea!

    • Yes for sure go look there Brittany! I hope you find some :) & yes these baskets are great for so much, but I do love them for magazine storage too :) Thanks for your sweet comment! xx

  3. i love it ….I love it…..I love it!……oh and did I mention I love it!
    the basket so works, I am off this weekend to hunt for something similar.

    Thanks for the inspiration! Currently my magazines (which i LOVE to look through) are stacked in my book shelf. Once the stack(s) become out of control I edit each magazine and cut out any article or picture that i want to save and store in my inspiration notebook (which by the way needs editing). After seeing your wire basket system makes me realize i really need to be a bit more stylish my magazine storage. By the way, I love your $5 fabulous chair. I think you could add two zeros to that price now!!

    • Wow thank you soooo much Maria.. I do love that chair so much, it’s so cozy! & seriously that’s what I did before I put them in baskets. They were tucked away in a closet and I would edit them once in a while, I love that they are nicely stored now because I actually read them more now that they are out and organized.. it’s nice and refreshing! Thank you for your sweet comment :)

  6. What would you suggest since some of my inspiration magazine’s aren’t exactly “show off” friendly. I am a photographer, and do some boudoir work, so some of my inspiration comes from *those* magazines if you know what I’m sayin LOL.

  7. Looks great doll! I use a similar antique milk crate… I love this idea so that I can have more storage!!

  8. I love keeping magazines around for the great color and beautiful decor. Your wire baskets are just the right touch!

  9. I love using baskets, especially wire ones! Great place for keeping magazines at your fingertips.
