Chalk Board Magnets

Found this idea posted at My {re}Purposed Life. Such a simple and fun idea! I love RENEWING those almost annoying magnet advertisement/calendars that come in the mail, stuck on the phone book, or in the Christmas letters from the tax person.





I've been squirreling away these magnets with no idea what to do with them...but just couldn't toss out a perfectly good magnet! These two came from our Realtor...no offense intended Cherise! (We really do love our realtor.) These were the biggest magnets I could find on the side of my fridge.



The chalk holder was an old Pumpkin Pie Spice tin. Again, plenty of magnets lurking around on the side of my fridge and in my junk drawers (yes, drawers, plural, how can you just have one?). I glued two magnets to the back...one might have worked but this will see a lot of traffic and I don't want it shifting all over the place.



wanna come over for dinner?

    1. I never thought of using them as photo holders. That's a good idea...and quicker to do! lol

    1. Happy hunting in your junk drawers! Its amazing what gets stuffed in there and forgotten. I hate when I find something in there that I just bought. lol
