The thing about collecting books and magazines is you need somewhere to put said books and magazines! Making your own home décor always feels much more personal and exciting than purchasing it. This DIY copper magazine rack is the perfect project to tackle if you're looking to add a stylish, but simple statement piece to your space. The best part? It's a piece of cake to build. 

The hardware aisle has become prime hunting-ground for do-it-yourself home decorators. Copper pipe and plumbing fittings are especially versatile materials for making trendy home decor, including candle holders. This sling, for instance, is made from a pair of old jeans and copper plumbing supplies. It will work hard to support your magazine habit, and look great, too! 

This magazine rack is a perfect item for this space. We have quite a few magazines that we keep around for our guests to flip through. We don't want them in a giant stack on the coffee table, and they really don't belong on our nice new bookshelves, so we needed a spot for them. This creation is not only for magazines it can also be used for books, remote controls, or for decorations. The ideas are endless.
