Creative Reuse 2008: Magazines as Side Table

What do you reuse? And how do you do it? Let us know, because we're looking for readers' photos and creative reuse projects. The first 15 ideas we post will get a free AT T-shirt (get all the details here). So send your projects our way!

Remember Jen's side table crafted out of old magazines? This project, sent to us by Brian, takes a different approach ... but we still really like the result!

Get the details after the jump.

Object(s): Old magazines and newspapers, rubber bands, bungee cord
Project: Side table
Instructions: I needed a side table and had an idea. I took all of my extra magazines and newspapers and rolled each one into a tube. I placed rubber bands around each tube to secure it. When I had enough of the tubes I tied them together using a bungee cord and I had a perfectly usable and cool table. If you wanted to you could add a wood top. You could also make the tables out of extra PVC pipe. I think its a good use for old magazines and newspapers before you recycle them. Its also a good alternative to buying a cheap table you might trash in a year or so.

(Thanks, Brian!)
