A handy bathroom magazine rack and toilet paper holder are made with some old garden fencing and a gardening tool. You may even be able to find these items in your own garage or shed!
The weathered look gives the piece some character, or you can sand and paint them so that it looks like new. This could also work in a country kitchen to hold cookbooks or your phone book. Or even in your garden shed to hold some gardening books, packets of seeds, or manuals to your outdoor machinery.
