Stylish Way to DIY Magazine Hangers
Ready to kick in reading bug this weekend? Then sit tight and learn how to DIY a stylish display for your precious magazines.
This might take you a trip down memory lane to intimate old cafés or libraries with rows of newspaper paddles or those old-fashioned newspaper holders with clamp – but today I’m going to share how you can both display and keep and eye of your latest favourite magazines.
For this project, I’ve found some vintage knobs (white & brass) and gorgeous porcelain knobs with delicate patterns from IB LAURSEN. So shall we?
Knobs with patterns from IB LAURSEN
White/ brass knobs vintage finds
Dremel 3000 or a metal cutting saw
Drill bit for the Dremel or a power drill
You’ll need 2 wood rails, each rail; 40 cm or 15,75 inches
Drill holes in each piece with the Dremel 3000, one hole at each end
Put the knob spindle through the hole you’ve drilled and screw a washer and nut onto the end
Now you’re ready to cut off the excess of the screw with the Dremel
Cut off excess screw length on all knobs. Make sure not to cut off too much if you want use it for your books
Cut a piece of leather cord, tie a knot and place the loop between your wood
Now attach the knobs to your piece at each end and just slide your magazine in between the two wood pieces, voilà!
This would work perfectly as a gift idea, maybe for Mother’s Day. Lovely display for your Mandala books or your children’s colouring books perhaps? I just love how I now can have a small, rotating collection readily available to peruse.
If you give your pieces the same colour as your walls, you can create a look that gives the illusion that your reading material is floating in space.
But I think I’ll give it some more contrast and try a dark wood stain colour later on.
Hope you enjoy this idea and might want to try to give your own walls a little whimsey. Need another idea to display your magazines? You could try thisoldie with copper tubes.
Thank you so much for reading and wishing you a lovely weekend!
