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
Applying magnetic paintDraw a square on the wall with pencil and frame it with masking tape.
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!
Thereafter, you can just paint over it with a regular wall paint. You might need two coats to fully cover the grey magnetic paint.
Decorative frame around the magnetic paintRemove the masking tape and trace the outline with a small brush and chalk paint to hide the jagged edges around the magnetic area.
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'.
