Artwork Magnet Board

Now that Christmas is over I can post my projects! YAY! This one was one of my faves. My Brother-in-Law Marc and his wife Michelle have 4 darling little kids and live in Salt Lake. They have a GORGEOUS house and my favorite thing about the house is this little art/work room they have. Each of the kids have a built in desk and cabinets to do their homework and artwork and have their space. In the middle of the room there is this HUUUUUUUGE (seriously probably 6x8 feet) glass top island that Michelle puts the kids artwork under to display. I thought it would be fun to give them something to display their artwork on the wall too.

I started with 2 pkgs. of magnetic clamps from Wally World. The black and white matched my color scheme perfectly.
And Gorilla Glue- I am officially converted!
I picked up one of these metal plaques from Robert's. I got it for $10 since I used my 40% off coupon. Score!
Sorry it's blurry. I am uber aware of my need for a new camera. But isn't the crackle lovely? Mmmmm
I glued the magnets on. Just to make sure they stayed. With little kids I didn't want to take any chances.

Put the vinyl letters on from my darling friend Andy. (Someday I will tell you about how she was so sweet it made me cry when I opened the vinyl letters)

On my wall
All fresh and ready to hold their artwork!
