Magnetic Messages

Martha Stewart Living, August 2007

Magnetic bulletin boards are handy, but the color options are limited. Make your own and you can match the powder blue of your kitchen. First, paint a prestretched artist's canvas. When it's dry, turn it over. Coat a piece of cut-to-fit sheet metal with spray adhesive, and attach it to the back of the canvas. Place a same-size piece of foam board on top of the metal. Then screw mirror clips (one on each side) into the frame and a sawtooth hanger on the back, toward the top. Glue ribbon around the edges for a finished look.
