For the photos, they are nicely stacked and most are tossed to the side and left out of the picture (bloggers' dirty secrets... our rooms are never that clean...especially mine)
I picked up a magazine holder at the thrift store one day and decided to redo it to match my office.
Stamp (I made my own, using a triangle foam sticker attached to a wooden block)
*You can skip the thrift store on this one and pick up a set of 2 white magazine holders over at IKEA for only $4.99! It will save you the step of painting white (my desired look)
1) Using the paintbrush, apply a thin layer of paint to the stamp.*
2) Press firmly but with a light touch (you do not want it to slide) onto magazine holder.
3) Repeat until you have enough stamps on the magazine holder!
4) Touch up any areas with paintbrush.
*Why don't I just dip the stamp in paint and stamp away? You get either too much or too little paint on the stamp, applying the correct amount with a paint brush gets you the right stamp every time! (Trust me, I learned from experience :)
The DIY took me only minutes and I love the look and it is well used. I will probably pick more up at IKEA for my shelves.
Use any stamp or color you want! Foam stickers make great DIY stamps- Stick a foam sticker on a wood block (or an old stamp, as I did with mine) and you are done! My wood block was an owl stamp, I bet an owl would look cute on a magazine holder...
