Why Haven't I Thought about That: DIY Photo and Postcard Organizer

On: Wednesday, November 28, 2012

You are most likely to have lots of photos, lots of memories. You like entering your home and being met by those memories. That's what make us feel at home!

However there's never a good way to organize them: Photo frames are boring (you can't often change photos in them) and they don't always fit. Besides, they cannot have too many photos inside...

Bizarre Magazine Racks?

What the heck? Why would anyone be interested in magazine racks, much less bizarre ones? Of course, people read magazines, and they probably need a place to put them when they are not reading, but still...magazine racks?

Well, after searching around for some really offbeat magazine racks, you may come to the conclusion that these rather unnoticed and un-thought of household items can actually be really cool! In fact, there are some magazine racks that are incredible artistic achievements in beauty and sculpture, with a value to match the artwork.

A World of Unique Magazine Racks

Magazine racks aren't only for professional offices. There are decorative magazine racks that look like suns, moons, or stars. Some designs look like an assortment of cute puppies or kittens. Some handmade racks are actually cup holders or plastic water bottles that hold rolled up magazines. There are even magazine racks made out of magazines!

Professional magazine racks range from the plain to the decorative to the sublime. Some racks are virtually invisible; the only way one can tell it is a magazine rack is because of the magazines that seem to be holding each other in place. Some of the racks are huge and are actually a real and beautiful piece of furniture. Some are antique in look, made with beautiful woods or metal; others are fancy baskets woven into special shapes as magazine holders.

Magazine Racks are Part of a Winning Atmosphere

The most professional businesses in the country decorate with beautifully designed, and admittedly bizarre, magazine racks. Places, from bank lobbies to doctor’s offices and from television stations to classy modeling agencies, all sport the best in magazine racks. Not only do people use the racks to hold magazines, but they also use them as display shelves. The racks are extremely eye-catching for promotions materials and upcoming events.

Until you begin searching for bizarre and out-there magazine racks, you may have no idea how fun and useful they are. Not only that, but they truly can be a work of art. Just think of one of your primary interest in life and then picture a rack that expresses that.

No, this was not a mistake: "magazine" is written twice for a reason: that's a shelf for magazines which is made of magazines.
