I transformed this free space between my kitchen cupboards into a decorative magnetic wall. Below is everything you need to copy this project:
- Paint brushes in different sizes
- 1 litre magnetic paint
- Alpine wall colour White
- Annie Sloan chalk paint "Coco"
- Masking tape
- Paint roller
- Stencil foil
- 1 Pen knife
- 1 Stencil brush
To equip your magnetic wall with suitable magnets and magnetised photos, you'll also need the following:
Then apply 3 to 4 coats of magnetic paint within the frame (adhere to the instructions on the can).
Since I painted on ingrain wallpaper and was afraid the magnets wouldn't adhere well later (which was totally unfounded), I decided to use a paint roller. Unfortunately I left some stains on the wallpaper where I didn't want them. But I was able to remove them easily with a wet cotton cloth!
Magnetising photosIf you want to put photos on the magnetic wall, you can just attach self-adhesive magnetic sheet MS-A4-STIC to the backside. I did the same with a small notepad.
You'll be surprised how strongly the neodymium magnets adhere to the magnetic wall. The smaller cube magnets hold a sheet of paper with no problem, the larger magnets even hold heavier coupon books.
Now I can hang up and arrange shopping lists, receipts, coupons, etc. nicely.
You can find this project and many others on my Blog 'shabby-it-yourself.de'.
