Magnetic Artwork Boards

I know, I know…some of you have totally given up on me ever showing any photos of the new office.  It’s almost complete.  I promise.  Three more items are being delivered very soon and then we’ll be reveal-ready.
Part of the new office is the kid table and artwork area.  Andy worked on part of that project for me.  I wanted a way to display the kids’ artwork, but without it being too permanent.  In other words, I did not want to have to switch out frames, etc.  So my inspiration were these:

Due to the space we had, Andy decided to get four 36-inch boards and paint them with black magnetic paint.

He set up a painting station in his work area of our basement.  The reviews for the paint were great as long as you stirred it really well before each coat and painted about 6-8 layers.  So for $20 we thought we’d give it a try.

After 8 coats of magnetic paint and 3 coats of black spray paint for a nicer finish, the job was complete.  Now, not all magnets will stick to it.  There are quite a few on our fridge that won’t work.  The magnet has to be really strong.  And then you can hang this fabulously colored Barbie up on the wall.

  1. Cool idea! We use the cable cord concept in Jaxon’s playroom. I’m getting ready to do a wall in our den which will be 6-8 clip boards. Saw it on Pinterest and lived the idea.
