Magazine rack

This is a neat Idea for college students and those who just moved out on their own Clever Shoebox Upcycle via DIY and Craft Tutorials By cutting two parallel  triangles into a shoebox and folding it in the centre, you can t...and a bit strapped for cash!
Why ever buy another wooden or magazine rack for even $3.99 and up. This one at most if you already bought a pair of sneakers or boots save the box… aside from that you just need to go to a dollar or discount store and get shelf lining paper (or tac paper) to decorate it and there ya go. Also the ones you buy in stores do not always fit the large magazines or other items you may need to fit in it.

 

also good to use as a craft tote just cut a handle into the top! a Quick toolbox for the essential hammer, wrench, screwdriver tape measure and some emergency fuses, flashlight, bulbs, screws, nuts bolts etc.

upcycle old jeans-BBQ Organizer

I posted this mainly for the BBQ Organizer as I know its close to that time of year, so any jeans on their way out… cut out those pockets  and save the legs.. (you can use those as part of the organizer.. say to keep the Grilling fork, spatula, & Tongs in!

ask friends and family for any jeans they are getting rid of (and if you have a good reasonable thrift store… you could always buy some jeans even children’s size pockets would come in handy for the straws, etc/

The pocket organizer gives a festive look to the decor of the party, and likely best placed on a main  table (where you will have all the supplies & snacks or as I call it the Supply Buffet!

Save those Pockets, save those legs…  or just cut the legs off and make a purse/tote!  DIY ideas for old jeans - Upcycling Projects with Denim | Cute Crafts and Creative Home Decor by DIY JOY http://diyjoy.com/16-upcycled-projects-from-old-jeans
