I was reading Better Homes & Gardens and they had a link to some of their favorite blogs so I was checking them out when I found Mandi at Vintage Revivals. At the very top of her blog was a leather magazine rack and I loved it. There is almost no space in our bedroom and I’ve been wanting something to keep books in by my side of the bed so that very day I created my own.
Even though we have a ton of leather sitting around our house I didn’t want to use something that Nate could use for his business, so instead I found some old fabric that I have and made that into my own magazine rack.
I followed a lot of Mandi’s instructions so please check out her site if you would like full instructions. Where I did change it up was to sew 2 fabrics together, inside out, of course. When I turned it right side out it was super wrinkled so I ironed it before I put the grommets on it. I did use scrap leather for the handles and Nate helped me make the knot, its one he uses often on saddles.
Its holding my books beautifully!
