[so cheap, so easy]: Oversized Magnet Board

I've had a couple of requests for the deets on my magnet board, so...a year later, here they are. I bought sheet metal measuring 5 feet by 4 feet from a heating and air-conditioning shop. It was right around $40. We (that usually means Jeremy hung it up, and I watched) used 18 screws and 18 washers to attach the metal to the wall. We used so many fasteners just to keep the sheet metal as flat as possible.  Stella is pretty much the boss of this board, and I love that it's a place where we can display all of her works of art. 


  1. Love it! I was planning a corkboard wall in the kid’s room this winter, but now you have me thinking that this might be easier (and cheaper)!

  2. That board is such a great idea and looks so good!


Thank you for your comments, it makes my day! If you have a question, I will answer it in the comments section as soon as I can. You can also email me at
