I have mentioned a few times, over the past month, that I have been working on my office/studio. I almost have everything exactly the way that I want it, except for the fact that I could use a bit more organization. I have so many magazines and binders that I need to keep, but as you know, magazines can cause a very cluttered looking design. Well, there was nothing for me to do but to get busy assembling some holders, but it makes for a good post! So, let me show you how to make magazine holders in a simple and easy fashion!
It has taken me a while, but I finally got around to building some honeycomb shelves. As part of my office makeover, I thought that a collage of honeycomb shelves would look nice and add a little extra wall storage. One thing that I have noticed with other DIYers’ methods was that the build was a bit awkward. There are six sections in each shelf, so getting them to fit together correctly was causing some people to end up with the last piece slightly out of sync. So, I thought I would show you how to build and hang honeycomb shelves using my construction tricks.
Of all the ways that there are to resurface a piece of furniture, by far one of the easiest is to use contact paper. When a quality brand is used and the surface is properly prepped, you can use contact paper for almost any smooth surface. So, when I wanted to create a faux reclaimed wood table, I knew that I would go with contact paper.
Not long ago, Restoration Hardware had this adorable, industrial desktop bookrack that I wanted. But of course, it was quite expensive, and now has been discontinued. Not being one to spend money on something that I believe I can make for a fraction of the cost, I decided that I would make my own. I have a lot of extra plumbing and structural piping laying around, so this looked like a good way to use some. I thought that I would share the results and the details on how I made it.
