DIY Magnetic Board

Are you tired of your refrigerator being cluttered with papers? Or is your refrigerator not big enough to hold all of them? I have the second problem and have debated getting a bulletin board for our family. Instead of having to deal with all those little tacks I came up with this quick and cheap solution.

To complete this project you need:

  • Sheet of sheet metal (easily found in Home Improvement stores)
  • Picture Frame (these can be old or new – you can even spray paint an old one to freshen it up)
  • Sheet Metal Sheers

Once you find a frame you like you just need to remove the glass or plastic. I used a poster frame that I had laying around the house.

We then measured the glass and cut the sheet metal out in that size. You will want to use work gloves when doing this because the sheet metal becomes sharp when cut.

Once that is done you just need to place it into the frame.

You can then mount it on the wall just like a picture frame and add fun magnets to it.

This is such an easy organizing solution and can be used in so many different sizes. As long as you have a frame you can cut the metal to fit inside it.  I love what this added to our new “drop-off” center and now my son wants one to hang his favorite stuff in his room.

Did you see the great solution I found to hold my kids school artwork in the picture? Be sure to come back next Monday to see the tutorial.
