30 Days of DIY Projects 2 Make Us Thankful
is the tenth post of our series of projects to make us thankful for
DIY. Be sure to check back everyday during the month of November for
new simple and easy DIY projects.
It's our way of saying Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at
Simply Easy DIY!
In our home, magazines seem to have babies.
We have several subscriptions that the children love and even I have a few woodworking subscriptions to keep track of.
Plus, we've always got friends who want to give us hand me downs. We do have a large collection accumulated.
Our system has been to use these plain grey cardboard holders.
To be honest, they were castaways from a prior workplace and are a little worse for wear. My old workplace was getting rid of them in order to re-organize the storeroom.
No, I didn't dumpster dive (not that I'm against that).
I like to think of it as going "warehouse diving" in a big dusty pile. Hehe! Not wanting to let something go to waste, I brought several home.
Now, you see the picture. Boring, right? Yeah that's what I thought as well. So at some point I thought about wrapping them in something to add a fresh look.
THEN...along came Shane Conlan from DIY for Knuckleheads. Yeah, we've talked about him before here at Simply Easy DIY.
He gives us a great idea for magazine holders.
What's not better on wheels? Nothing I says, nothing at all.
