I recently saw a picture of a really cute magnetic board. I could use one by the front door to leave notes or shopping lists so I half-heartedly followed a link posted with the picture. I was half expecting it to be an expensive craft. Nope.
All it took was some paint and an old cookie sheet! I have a couple cookie sheets that have become warped or rusted. Because the sheets are metal, you use spraypaint on them. I bought a can of spraypaint and painted one of the cookie sheets. I glued some twine to the back so I could hang it on the wall.
I need to buy some cute magnets for my new magnetic message board. I think it will probably cost me less than $15 when it's all said and done.
