We are so excited to be guests today at the Wood Connection! We love their products and their people. : )
With kids back in school now, we are feeling the need to get re organized. We’re going to show how we used some great stuff from the Wood Connection to help us create a Weekly Calendar that we can write on AND is magnetic!
Here’s what you’ll need:
One large magnetic sheet from the Wood Connection
Washi Tape (the Wood Connection)
Ribbon (the Wood Connection)
Mini clothespins (Wood Connection)
Magnets (Wood Connection)
Dry Erase paint
Hook or nail for hanging
Start by sanding the metal sheet just to rough it up a bit.
Then paint with a coat of primer.
Next step is the dry erase paint. (We just got it at the Home Depot.) It comes in 2 parts and you mix them together when you’re ready to paint.
We ended up painting 4 coats of the dry erase paint. We wanted it to have excellent coverage.
After letting the paint set for 3 days, create lines using washi tape to divide the new white board into sections. We chose to do a weekly calendar with space for 4 kids names along the bottom.
The final touches can be whatever you want! Handwritten, vinyl, magnets or stickers. We found both stickers and magnets to make the labels.
Make note of the cutest ribbon ever, possibly. It’s very burlap-esque, which I love!
We also added some mini clothespins along the bottom, for important papers.
Never forget that permission slip again! : )
This hangs on Steffany’s garage door, which means the door is magnetic; so a magnet place on the back of each corner is what holds it up. Then, to help it really stay in place, we put a Command hook on the door and hung the magnet board with ribbon as well. So functional and cute!
