DIY Magnetic Inspiration Board

DIY Magnetic Inspiration Board


I’ve been in need of a handy and easy-to-change-things-around inspiration board. Finally I decided it’s going to be magnetic! That way I can swap things aroud whenever I feel the urge. I had the thrifted frame lying about and Panu painted a fitted piece of plywood with magnetic paint for it.

Magnetic paint needs extra strong magnets for thicker items like postcards. Magazine tears and thin (regular weght) paper are ok with normal magnets. A magnet board is good also in the kitchen, especially if your fridge doesn’t hold magnets – or is too full of them already.

This foxy lady is a string dispenser from Anthropologie. She wears scissors for eyeglasses. My baby boy loves her, he always wants to come and have a look!

    Looks good! I’ve also been thinking about getting a magnetic board (self made or ready one) as an inspiration board. Or a cork board.

    I understand the baby boy’s interest in the foxy lady. She’s awesome! :)

    Vau, tuo kettu on tosi viehko! Ja magneettitaulukin on hieno, mutta lämpenin nyt tuohon kettuun niin kovasti, että siihen pitää tutustua lähemmin. Pitää vaan äkkiä keksiä mihin tarvitsen narutelinettä. Tulevaan puutarhavajaanihan tuollainen olisi oikein käytännöllinen!

    Mervi, this is quite handy, but for our boy’s room I’m thinking just a sheet of metal so even normal magnets will stick better.

    Laura, siis puutarhavajaan todellakin, tai sitten lahjojen paketointiin (ajankohtaista!) tai ylipäänsä askarteluun. Ainahan naruteline on tarpeellinen! :D

    Piia Anneli, meillä jääkaappiin ei tartu magneetit, joten tehtiin keittiöön toinen samanlainen.
