DIY Magnetic Chalkboard {Picture Tutorial}

Hey Y’all! I’ve got a really easy craft for you this week. I’m going to show you how to make your own magnetic chalkboard. You only need 2 things:



  • A Metal tray {I got mine from the Dollar Tree, they have a few different shapes}


Make sure the tray is wiped clean, I had a couple of dust things on it that I noticed after I started painting.


Follow the directions on the can. I applied 2 coats, letting it dry a little bit in between each coat.


Let it dry for 24 hours before you try to use it, again trust me on this. I was impatient and tried to use it after a few hours…it didn’t work so just let it dry.


I wanted mine on the side of a cabinet in my kitchen so I could put daily reminders on it. I used my favorite 3M picture hanging strips to hang it up so I can take the chalkboard down to use for other things {like photo shoots}.


I like that it is magnetic so I can put things {like coupons} that I don’t want to forget to use on it. A fun and quick craft that you can make for just a couple of dollars!
