If it pains you to toss your magazines as soon as you read them, just in case you want to go back to one later, having somewhere to store or display them that keeps you from ending up on Hoarders is a necessity.
If you’d prefer to hide your magazines out of sight, a vintage suitcase like the one above will allow you to add a bit of yesteryear’s charm to a corner of a room while stashing yesterday‘s (or month’s) magazines. Perch it on top of a small table in a hallway or living room.
You can stack a few inside framed mini-bookshelves for a colorful touch on the wall like Kate did for Jen and Chad’s place and then featured on the Change of Sceneries blog.
She took pieces of wood, added them to the backs of old frames, and grouped them together to create a colorful, asymmetrical area where the couple could display their favorite books and other small items.
Choosing the right frame size will allow you to display your favorite magazines and always have them on hand.
If you don’t mind rolling your magazines up and giving them a permanent curve, Apartment Therapy demonstrates a new way to use your magazines as decorations—inside of an old wooden Coca-Cola crate. You can find the crates on eBay, Etsy, Craigslist or even the local flea market and add color and visual interest to the room, beneath a table, beside a chair, or in a corner.
Isaac Chen created another option for displaying magazines. Consider splitting your magazines into categories, then featuring them in the appropriate rooms on the string and stoppers that make up his minimalistic and modern design.
