DIY Magnet Board

Isn't my new magnet board cute? I made it in exactly 3 minutes. Honest! And you can too. Here's what you do:

1. Next time you're at Lowe's or Home Depot swing by the roofing section where they sell 8" x 14" aluminum "shingles" for less than $1 (they have larger and smaller sizes too)

2. Grab that old 8"x10" picture frame out of the closet (you know, the one you don't have a photo for and it doesn't really match the other frames on your wall? That one.)

3. Lay the frame's glass on the shingle and mark the dimensions with a pencil.

4. Use tin snips to cut the aluminum shingle to the correct size.

5. Put the shingle in the frame, secure the back and 'voila,' you have a cute magnetic board. Hang it on the wall or set it on a table top. Stick stuff on it! Brag about it!


Thank you for your comments. Hearing from you makes my day!
