Say WHAT??   Huh

I wish I had pictures to explain, but when I was single...living in my own place I had a set of bunk beds given to me.  I took the top bunk part of my twin bunk bed frame apart to where I only had the framed tubular metal rods that the mattress usually goes on...I put it against the wall and shoved my lower bunk (minus the posts for the top bunk) against it like a headboard.  It looked like a giant, wide ladder.  I opened my zines to the middle-most page and hung them on all the 'slats', then tucked them in behind the next row of zines.  It looked really cool...kind of like some stands I've seen at libraries.  It held at least 20 magazines and it was a nice, interesting display for no money!

It looked like this...http://ourhouse.ninemsn.com.au/ourhouse/factsheets/db/intheworkshop/01/188.asp
I guess you could use a couple of old wooden ladders or wooden shutters would be cool, too.

Oh sure, good idea... We had friends once who bought a bunch of rickety old wooden ladders of various heights, at flea markets/yard sales etc. They took out the flat rungs & replaced with dowels, also added dowels wherever possible on the other side. Then painted-stencilled-decoupaged or otherwise decorated them up with floral designs & put them all around what they called their 'garden room' (what the English sometimes call a 'conservatory' I guess -- big glassed-in house-addition type room) to hang their subscription gardening mags on.
