DIY Magazine Rack

Oct 21st, 2014

I’m obsessed with the ladder towel holder that I built for my bathroom, so I whipped up another one for magazines in the office! I used thinner pieces of wood so that the magazines would lay flat, but other than that, the plans are basically the same!

I used my trusty B.B. Frosch Chalk Paint powder to make Chalk Paint, and painted it with Behr Lipstick.

I distressed it a little bit with dark wax to give it a little more character, and I love how it turned out!

A few weeks ago on the World’s Longest yard sale, one of my friends who was on the trip asked me a question about my faith. She said, “Do you have electricity?” I burst into laughter and about died laughing. I will keep her identity secret, but you better believe that I will never let her live that down.  I answered her in a serious tone and said, “Only on Sundays” <----sense the sarcasm, of course. By the end of … [Continue reading…]
