Framed Magnet Boards


I finally decided what to do with a couple frames I picked up at the thrift store for $3.00 each.  They are good size frames too - 14x18.


So did you see all that dust?  Yep, that's how I bought them, not from sitting in my garage.  After I gave them a good wipe down, I spray painted them with a coat of Rust-oleum's Heirloom White.

 
That big shadow is the basketball pole.  Then I spray painted them with a couple coats of Rust-oleum Expresso.


They were looking much better now.


Then I very lightly sanded the decorative part on the frame so the white would show through.


I went to Home Depot to find some metal and came across this piece in the plumbing section for about $6.50.


I cut off the lip on the end and then cut it in half.  It was the exact size I needed.  I also had some material that I picked up from Joann's.



I just used a little hot glue to attach the fabric to the metal.


Then I put it in the frame.


Aren't they just lovely?  I was so excited with how they turned out.

  1. Love this. Couldn't be cuter! Question: how does one cut that metal. Does it take a special tool?
