{framed magnet board}

Posted by Picasa

I use this board daily, and it's perfect for right next to my desk--announcements, cards, and more! I made the frame out of wood pieces, although I decided against mitering the corners (like a picture frame, at an angle) and went with squared edges instead. I love it! The edges were routered, and sheet metal glued onto the back (there were grooves for it to fit in). I sanded, painted, re-sanded the edges, and then stained it. I finally mod podged this fantastic scrapbook paper onto the sheet metal, and added the cream grosgrain ribbon to cover the seams. Next time I'll make it 12x12, so the paper will fit easily inside the space.

If you don't have access to all the tools I mentioned, another EASY way to do this is using a frame of your choice. Just take the glass out, and replace it with sheet metal. There are some great frames out there, so this is a very accessible option.
