Upcycled Leather Hanging Magazine Rack
Everyone is in need of a stylish magazine rack, am I right? It doesn’t get more fantastic than this upcycled leather hanging rack that I made for Alicia’s Office Makeover.
For this project you will need:
Leather (2 pieces that measure 11”x21” each) My favorite place to find leather is from an old couch that needs a new lease on life.
(2) ¾” Grommets (get them at Home Depot in the Tool section! SO MUCH cheaper than at the craft store!)
(1) 24” piece of ½” copper pipe
(2) ½” copper pipe straps
(2) 6’ pieces of rope
Start by folding your leather in half. Mark the holes for your grommets by pressing them into the leather.
Cut the holes using a pair of scissors
Place your grommet. Make sure that it is going through both pieces of leather!
Once your grommets are placed, its time for the fun part!
Take your rope and fold it in ½. Place it over your copper pipe and feed it through the loop that you’ve created. Do this for both pieces.
Feed the ends of your rope through the back of the leather pouch (so that they are coming out of the front.)
Tie a knot and feed the ends back through the grommet.
Pull it nice and tight, and repeat for each of the other grommets.
Knot the ends
Hang it on the wall with the copper pipe straps. Step back and admire your handiwork.
