DIY Chalk & Magnetic Board

DIY Chalk & Magnetic Board

Do you want to make a cool, quirky, vintage chalk and magnetic board? Well, you came to the right place. I’m trying to get organized, so my first project was to make a messaging board. I asked myself what can be used as a chalkboard and a magnetic board? A cookie sheet of course! Follow these simple instructions and you will have your own one-of-a-kind DIY Chalk & Magnetic Board. Enjoy!

What you will need:


1. I wanted red chalkboard paint and couldn’t find it in any stores, so I turned to trusty Pinterest and found an easy recipe. You can make your own chalkboard paint too by following Crystelle Boutique’s directions {here}.
