Going Down the Rabbit Hole

before

Help me! I’m going down the Rabbit Hole! I’ve been drafting a lot of patterns. Yes, I need a better storage solution. Since I’m not done with them, I’m leaving them out. What’s that you say? Is that a white board, well yes it is! However, I cannot access it for all of the patterns in the way. To the rescue, another great idea from Pinterest by Jenn at Endlessly Inspired, a fabric-covered magnet board. Great instructions at her site lead to this:

Magnetic board

Since this tiny little portion of my studio is done, wallpaper stripped and painted Glidden’s Cappuccino White, I mounted the new magnetic board! And the results:

Hurray! I got the oil drip pan at our local Auto Zone for $10, covered it with fabric from Joann Fabric using spray adhesive to adhere the fabric, and 16 lb Command removable strips to hang the board. Total project time was less that 1/2 hour. I did let the fabric and adhesive dry over night. I used the heavier strips since I not sure how heavy everything will be that I stick on.

I’m planning on adding magnets to the back of Ikea’s Bygel rail and attaching it to the bottom of this board. Trying to minimize the number of holes in the wall. Stay posted, I’ll show the results.

QNow go and have yourself a fun-filled, crafty day!
