Thanks for the awesome tutorial Jamielyn!! That board would match my daughters bedroom perfectly! Gonna have to add it to my “to make” list!!
I’m so excited to be participating in a blog swap today!! One of my favorite things about blogging is getting to know new people!!
So please… meet Jamielyn of I heart nap time with chocolate Sundaes!!
Hi! I’m Jamielyn from I♥naptime w/ chocolate Sundaes! I’m so excited to be guest blogging on the polka dot chair! I LOVE anything with polka dots…so of course I loved her blog from the get go! So many fun projects that I’ve added to my ever growing to-do list!
Today I’m going to share a tutorial with you on how to make a “Dressed Up” Magnet board!
I had a lot of bead board laying around from when we remodeled our kitchen, so I decided to put it to some good use. I took some of the scraps to Lowe’s and had them cut me a 12×14 piece. Lowe’s is always so nice!
Then I sanded around the edges to give it more of a vintage look. I LOVE this mini 3M sander I just got! Perfect for small projects like this!
Next I took some ralph lauren smoke glaze and went around the edges. Make sure to dab your sponge before putting it on so it’s not to thick. You can use a distressing ink for this as well.
The next step is to put on the metal. I bought a galvanized sheet of metal from Home Depot for .99 cents. I put liquid nails in the middle of the sheet (a big X) and then hot glued the corners. This way it grabbed fast, but will still have a strong hold.
Next comes the fun part! Making it looks pretty! :) Pick out some fun paper to match your house (this will be going in my girls nursery) and cut it to overlap the metal just a little bit. Then Mod podge it on with a sponge brush! I didn’t do a layer of mod podge on top of the paper, but you always could!
I used two different papers and separated them with a ribbon. Again use your mod podge for the ribbon… love that stuff!
For the magnets I hot glued them to some flowers I already had. Two of them are rolled flowers and one is a small silk flower.
Now hang it on the wall or put it in a pretty stand….that’s it! Pretty simple and only ended up costing around $3! Let me know if you have any questions.
Oh and of course it’s not complete with out a few pictures of my cute family! :)
Hope you enjoyed the tutorial! Thanks for having me today! I’d love for you to stop by I♥naptime and see what else I’ve been up to! Make sure to come to our party tomorrow night to link up all your fun projects!
