However, with lots of magazines comes magazine storage.... of which we do not have. So I decided to invest in a quick little project. I was able to pick up two plastic magazine holders. They were clear, and I thought, what the heck, this could be a cute little project. Why don't I spray paint them silver & use them on the shelves in the living room.
This is how we started:
We cleaned them out, and prepared them for spray painting. We taped the back of each of the grids to keep the inside clear, but coat the outside. We cut out construction paper and covered the flat surfaces.
The we used a metallic spray paint to coat the plastic. We put two thin coats on everything. While they are not perfect, they look pretty great for free!
I had to touch up the one on the right, as the finish was a little too matte, and they look perfect now. We don't have a final resting place for them yet, but they will be part of the living room refresh. Look for them in the final pictures!
