I needed something old and country themed to display my Country Sampler magazines in at my Booth #555 at the Peddlers Mall.

I asked my husband to fix me up something and this is what he came in with.  
He took some short pieces of some aged barn lumber we had, and simply cut and pieced them together. In a type of form that he thought would house magazines.  And, in my opinion he done great!

After taking the photo, I sanded it down with some sheets of coarse sand paper and then sealed it with some craft sealer. I didn't want anyone to get splinters while reaching for the magazines.

I wish I'd taken a photo of it finished. If I did, I can't find it yet.....

And by the way, after being in my craft booth as a display item only, I had calls from the store that people wanted to purchase this. So I priced it for only $9.99 and my husband is now making me some more. 

Here is a photo of the second one he made:
I loved the first one better, but with old barn lumber, hardly two are ever the same.
