Table those magazines

Keep the most recent issues of your favorite magazines and newspapers neatly stored in a side table with pull-out trays. A divider in the center of one tray maintains a tidy look for magazines. You can adapt an ordinary side table for this purpose by attaching runners to each pair of legs for trays to rest and slide on. Paint the table and trays in one color for a cohesive finish.
