Fun Storage Idea: Magazine Roll-Ups {House by Hoff}

Oh what a wonderful Wednesday it is today! As I am still recovering from the surgery I had back in July, I am so blessed to have the most amazing and talented friends who have been willing to guest post for me over the past few weeks. {Hey, they’ve been so good, you might not ever want me back! 😉 }

I have absolutely loved getting to know April from House by Hoff over the past year or so. Not only is she super sweet, but she also is a rockstar photographer and amazing decorator– she makes it look easy! April was another one of my blog friends I had the pleasure of meeting at Haven, and it was so fun to finally be able to connect in person!

April is here today with a fun storage idea that made me wonder, “Why didn’t I think of that?!” It’s simple and cute and… well, I’ll just let her tell it!


Hello, Just a Girl and Her Blog readers!

I’m April, and I blog over at House by Hoff about my latest projects, photography, parties, decorating, etc.

I have a super-easy magazine storage idea to share with you today….Magazine Roll-Ups!

Magazine Roll Ups | House by Hoff for Just a Girl and Her Blog

This is going to be a pretty detailed tutorial, so you might want to get out a pen and paper to take notes.

Are you ready? Ok, good.

First grab all of your old magazine piles {you know you have them}!

Next, roll them up.

Last, tie them up with some twine, pretty yarn, {or, in this case, old shoe strings}.

I love how they look in a wire basket! You can still see all of the bright, pretty colors!

Wouldn’t this look great on a shelf or under a bench, or next to the couch….

Easy, fun and cute!

{Just how I like my projects!}

I’d love to have you over at House by Hoff soon!

I always appreciate any social media love! 😉

Have a great day!


I know I definitely have some magazine piles that could use this treatment! Don’t forget to pop over to House by Hoff to take her home tour, check out her cute party ideas, and snag some photography tips! Thanks so much for stopping by!

    I saw this on google+ and immediately stopped over. I’m sharing with all of my followers, too. I love home decorating and have 100s of mags, most of which are neatly stacked on an Arhaus wooden bench but I have more and more coming in all the time, right? I’m doing this and I’m sharing you awesome idea via all my social media, too. Love it!!


  11. Jen Jelly says:

    That’s such a great idea, I currently have a really ugly 1980’s era magazine holder, I never though to roll them up, it gives me a lot more options. Thanks for the tip!

  12. Lecy @ Simple Life Happy Wife says:

    April, I love this idea! My dad works in construction and he stores his blueprints rolled in a basket just like this – I never thought to store magazines this way! What a creative storage option. Thanks for sharing!
