Rustic Metal Magnet Board

Well, I decided to get started with getting some things up on the wall in Kennedy's new room and I thought I'd start with somewhere to put all her artwork and little bits of paper. She had a tattered old corkboard before that worked, but this is more fun!


Can you tell what it is?

It's an old cookie sheet! Like a really gucky old one that I never use anymore. The spray paint job was a little less than perfect (or a lot, whatever) so I roughed it up a little and I liked the look.

I found these little magnets that look like push pins at the dollar store, but they were all different colors, so I painted them black. I added a little chick silhouette to go with some of the other artwork I hope to add into the room in the future.


And look, it really works! Neat huh? Pin It

Great upcycle! I'm sure I have a nasty looking cookie sheet hiding somewhere, too!
