Versatile Magnet Board

I have had an old magnet board lying around forever that needed a revamp!!! I made it so I could use it all year round and hang up just about anything!

Materials Needed:
1 Magnet Board
2-3 Pieces of scrapbook paper
Mod Podge
Sponge Brush
An old rag or Paper towels

Step 1: Cut your scrapbook paper to fit the size of your metal piece from your magnet board.
Step 2: Apply a layer of Mod Podge to the metal layer of your magnet board and place your pre-cut paper on top of the mod podge.
Step 3: Apply another layer of mod podge on top of your paper. I just did this to protect the paper.
Step 4: If you want to make your Magnet Board look a little old and rustic, water down some paint (the color of your choice) and apply a very thin layer and wipe off quickly with a paper towel or old rag.

Step 5: I had a Clip that I was able to hot glue to the board so that I could clip anything on my board or I attach anything with magnets! There are endless possibilities. I have made a couple of things to hang on mine so far. I can't wait to make something for every holiday/season!

Wow, you have been busy. I love the tiles, there are so many things you could do with them. I really need to find somewhere to buy old cupboard doors. I have a few projects I want to make with them but can't find one anywhere! Where did you find yours?
