Magnetic Memo Board

I have a confession to make....I LOVE Pinterest! Love, love, love it! This magnetic memo board is my first completed project inspired by a pinterest post. So easy....so cute...so functional...and so many options to fit in your own home decor. Check it out:

Here is the pinterest post inspiration...a blog post from TaterTots & Jello

Here is what you need for this project:

  • frame
  • sheet metal
  • fabric
  • tin snips
  • tape
  • spraypaint (optional depending on the frame you use)
Supplies before getting started
I bought a frame at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore for $2...1/2 yard of houndstooth fabric was $3.50 and the sheet metal was about $10. I already had some spraypaint, so this project cost a total of $15.50. 
Remove glass from frame and cut the sheet metal to the size of the glass.
(Wear gloves! The cut metal can be sharp.) 
Wrap your fabric around the sheet metal. I affixed it with painters tape.

Place your fabric covered metal into the frame.
Ta Da! Magnetic message board for my kitchen desk.
Perfect place for a magnetic grocery list pad
and a place to put invitations and cards.
Finished product on my kitchen desk!
