Magnetic Board Made With A Cookie Sheet

Hey there!

Next to Pinterest, YouTube is a crafty minx. You watch haul and DIY videos and then you get sucked in. I kept seeing this craft on Pinterest and YouTube and decided that I really wanted to try it. All I needed was a cookie sheet from the Dollar Tree, some magnets and a can of spray paint. But, because I wanted it to look spectacular, I also added some goodies from my stash.

The first thing I did was wait for a dry day. We had so many rainy days the week that I wanted to try this project. I learned the hard way that spray paint doesn't like damp weather. So, once I had my dry day, I pulled out my drop cloth and large box (to protect my deck from getting splattered) and got to work.

I chose a glossy paint in Bahama Sea by Krylon ColorMaster. It claimed to dry in 10 minutes or less and I think it was true to it's word. I gave it about 20 minutes between coats just to be safe.

I sprayed 3 coats just to make sure everything was covered. I wanted to make sure the surfaces that would not be seen got a coat but anything that would be seen would be covered well.

After letting the last coat dry overnight, I decided to, not only add my magnets, but add a little bit extra. I pulled washi tape and post it notes to add to the board. I also added a cute little sticker in the corner that reads "Never Give Up". I need that because sometimes my blog ideas don't turn out quite like I planned them. That happens with Pinterest and YouTube sometimes.

But not this time! I am in love with my magnetic board. I think it's great for your desk space, your kitchen, by the front door, you name it.
