Well. I have begun my Pinterest projects that I posted about last time. The ideas I had previously posted about gave birth to different (and better? hmmm) ideas. Here are the results!
So I took the concept of the following 3 Pinterest posts:
|Magnetic Makeup Board|
|Childs Magnet Board|
and made.... THIS!
Cool, right? (cute magnets are still in the making for my pictures...!) My jewelry was taking up all my bathroom counter space in a clear plastic bowl (fancy, I know!)... This board filled a very empty and boring space on my bedroom wall and gave me my counter top back! This was a VERY cheap and easy project. Most of the supplies any crafter will have on hand.
Here's how I made it (please note that the step-by-step pics are taken with my old and very much BROKEN camera...all pics taken inside are very dark, but the outside pics are still good thanks to the natural light! All future pictures will be taken with my new Canon Rebel T2i!)
Buy an oil trip pan from Wal-Mart in the auto parts section. They are $9.56 and completely awesome! They are 4 foot by 2 foot so PLENTY of space to hang jewelry and use magnets to post reminders and pictures!
Spray Paint (I keep various shades on hand)
2 yards of material (Always check the $Yard table first!)
Adhesive spray (I keep this on hand always!)
hooks (I started with super cheap ones... they didn't hold much. I ditched them and bought HEAVY duty hooks at Lowes. They were $3 something each in the nail aisle, but can hold 9 lbs each! The little hooks couldn't even hold a 1 necklace!)
magnets (pack of 12 in craft section at Wal-Mart For $2)
wooden dowel rode (pack of 16 in craft section at Wal-Mart For $1.87)
|Spray paint all your hooks and sticks with 2 coats and let dry while you glue on the material!|
|Flip over, cut off excess material, and spray down edges.|
|Put your magnets on your hooks.|
and made did THIS:
