My great friend from work is pregnant with a baby boy! She’s tried to get pregnant for years, and I could not be more excited for her to have her baby in August! She knows that I love to decorate, and she’s been showing me pictures of baby bedding and nurseries for months now! She fell in love with this blue toile bedding, but it was just too expensive. I knew she loved it so much, and was bummed that she didn’t have it in the nursery, so I thought she would appreciate something in the room with the same feel of the bedding she fell in love with! I made this magnetic board for that very reason:
Easy DIY magnetic memo board:
It all started with this frame for 50 cents from a thrift store OUTLET – woah!
I sanded the frame:
And stained it with my never-ending stain – leftover from my first kitchen table project, and my medallion table too. This time, my parents pug – Otis – decided he wanted to have some attention, and he just jumped right in the frame while I was staining it.
He’s just the sweetest dog in the world!
I bought some sheet metal from Lowe’s…which ended up being more expensive than I thought it would be. The smallest piece I could buy was 24″ x 36″ (the piece I needed was 20″ x 16″). I thought they may be able to cut down my piece in the store, but unfortunately they couldn’t.
I measured the piece and marked it:
I was able to borrow some “metal cutters” from my dad. I had such a hard time trying to cut the metal, I had to recruit my husband to help me:
I also made some magnets, but I used leftover fabric instead of scrapbook paper (you can find a tutorial to make magnets like these here)
