Storing magazines and favourite publications usually end up being under a coffee table or stacked up in a bookshelf. Why not show them off by making some alternative shelving. Keep it simple with a few pieces of wood or how about a cool leather strap to hold your magazines.

We have found a few tutorials to help you decide.

In recent weeks we have noticed the popular trend of indoor ladders used as decorative and practical objects in the home. Ideal for hanging plant pots and tea towels in a kitchen, hooks and accesories in a hallway or maybe just somewhere to hang clothing in a bedroom. 

To get the look why not try making one yourself. A wood finish is great as you can look at different thicknesses to suit or use dowling rods [ plus you can paint it any colour you like ]. Alternatively opt for copper, a popular choice still. Using piping and attachments it couldn’t be easier.
