Magnetic Board!

One of the first projects I found on Pinterest was a magnetic make-up board!  I have finally got one of my own!  It was no cheap project {I had big dreams!}!  However, I do want to share it with you!

Here is a break down of the supplies you will need to make this yourself:

Open Photo Frame {I got mine at HL; 31.99 with a 40% off coupon}
Magnetic material {I bought a huge sheet at Home Depot....about $8}
Caulking {Found this in my garage}
Hanging Hooks/Loops {Had these in my tool bag}
5 Minute Apoxy {Walmart about $5}

I let the other half do a lot....okay all....of the metal cutting.  After cutting myself stringing baseballs...I wasn't taking any chances!  He measured the inside of the frame and cut the metal material to size.  I used the caulking to seal the metal material to the back side of the frame {see below}.

Once that was dry, I measured out where I wanted my hooks.  I marked them off and used the 5 minute apoxy to affix them to the frame.  I put a dab where I wanted the hook, placed the hook down on top of it.  Once that was almost dry, I put a layer of apoxy on top of the hook so ensure a strong hold {see below}.

Since I am using this for my make-up, I also got some crafting magnets and glued them to the back of the make-up pieces.

I can't tell you how excited about this thing I am!!

~Happy Organizing!
