3 Metal Magnet Board
Bring on the metal. This sheet metal that needs a little less ‘out of the factory’ look.
It’s nice and shiny, but I don’t want that.
I fell the need to ‘un’shine it…give it some personality and poke some holes in it to hang it and give it a home.
Enter in: wire torcher’er’
Your job is to ‘un’shine metal.
I got this weird looking thing at the hardware store. I don’t recall asking them for a specific weird looking thing, just something that could buff my metal. This is what I was led to. You just put it in your drill and off it goes.
Punch holes in the corners.
You can use a drill bit and drill your metal or if you have this crop a dile it will come in handy.
It’s a cool tool, it will punch though metal. I wasn’t a believer until I tried it. It went through metal.
SO much faster and cleaner than a drill bit, but use what you have…or convince your husband that this will make his life easier somehow:)
Pull some ribbon through the holes. I seriously need to trim that ribbon on the left.
Do you see the metal? Do you see the swirls? If not, don’t give up, keep looking at the rest of the pics. You’ll see it soon.
To make it easy to hang, I put two holes closer to the top center and strung ribbon though it.
It made it easy to hang.
Tie two and then three.
A fun idea for school pictures, to do lists, or just some cute pictures of nieces.
The metal is a thick gage. It doesn’t need to be super thick, just think enough that it will stand and not curl. You can get the cheaper metal because you will be ‘buffing’ it anyway.
Look for metal shops in your phone book…really…we are techie now, look it up on the internet:)
We are linking up to these parties…thanks ladies
