I am so thrilled to be guest posting here at Tatertots and Jello today. Thank you, Jen, for having me. I do not know about you, but I am amazed at how quickly the school year is approaching. My boys start school next week! Wow! (Yes, I might have just jumped into the air and clicked my heels together in glee.) Just kiddin’… No, I’m not.
To help your kids (or you) stay organized this school year, I thought I would share with you a very easy DIY magnet board that I made for my boys
I purchased a 24×24 inch sheet of STEEL from Lowe’s for about $10.00. They have all different kinds of sizes, so you could make your magnet board smaller or larger if you wanted. I also bought two 1x2s from Lowe’s. Get the cheapest 1x2s you can find. These were $1.97 a piece.
After you finish nailing all the tacks in, you are done! How easy is that?! Now my magnet board was plain when I hung it in my boys’ room, but I was wondering what it would look like with some lettering on it. So I uploaded my pictures into Picnik and added my boys’ names on the board to see what it would look like. I loved it!!
In the next picture, I added my son’s name in blue to see how that would look…
Again…I love it! Who would think a piece of steel could look so feminine? Here is the memo board with my favorite saying on it (added through the magic of Picnik, of course.)…
