Inspiring Idea:: How to Make a Magnetic Chalkboard

via Less than perfect life of Bliss

How do you make a magnetic chalkboard?

Ok, so this was a question I had in one of my comments or emails at some point and I felt bad that I couldn’t give a proper answer. I tried to use magnetic paint under my chalkboard paint once and it didn’t work. Now I know why, thanks to Julie of Less Than Perfect Life of Bliss!

Julie’s post on How to Make a Magnetic Chalkboard gives all the do’s, do nots and answers and a great solution too for an adorable DIY magnetic chalkboard!

  1. Melissa,

    Up to 5 days to actually become magnetic and the magnetic paint cancels out the chalk board paint? Of course it’s not mentioned on the can, they’d lose sales!
    Thank you for sharing this post. I adore her use of old broaches to make decorative magnets!

    Your Friend,

  4. I ran into some of the same issues as Julie, AND my magnet paint clumped up and wouldn’t dry. I used metal roof flashing, which is similar to sheet metal but comes in a roll to make my magnetic chalkboard.
