Beer Box Magazine Holder

An empty 12 pack Corona Light box (my beverage of choice) was sitting in our laundry room waiting to be taken out to the trash.  I thought it looked like it would be just the right size to hold magazines, so I quickly grabbed one of my HGTV magazines and tried it out.  What do you know... it was a perfect fit!!  So I cut the box in a "magazine-holder-type-fashion" (that's a technical term), wrapped it with some brown paper, and added some twine and raffia to dress it up.  Brown paper was all I had a around the house, but I bet it would look cool with some fun wrapping paper too.  (The Container Store is my favorite place for fancy wrapping paper fyi).

So in 10 minutes, with zero dollars, I turned trash into some fun storage!   This will be going in the study once I finish the built-ins.


I'm linking up at this link parties... go check them out!

  6. I love this idea. I have made magazine holders from cereal boxes, but love the idea of a bigger box. My house is full of magazines and they always slide all of the place! Thanks for the idea! I am stopping by from #SITSblogging!
