Before we head off to Arizona where there’s a possibility of no internet for a few days. (What?! Ermagersh. Makes me sick.), I’m sharing one more simple project! Getting ready for the big move has given me the opportunity to purge and refresh my workspace. In the past few weeks, I’ve tossed items that I didn’t need and have updated and/or purchased items like this DIY Painted Magnet Board to make the desk more functional and beautiful. And you can totally make your own. In under 10 minutes. Everybody wins!
- Magnetic Bulletboard Square by Umbra
- Mint acrylic paint
- Paint Brushes (1 foam, 1 thin not-foam?)
- Liquid gold
- Painter’s tape if you like to have crisp and perfect lines
Paint the bottom right corner mint green. Just use a small amount to create a thin layer of minty goodness.
If the paint clogs up the little holes, use a toothpick to clear them out.
The mint paint will be dry to the touch in about five minutes. Once it has set, paint a few strokes of the liquid gold just above the mint and slowly blending down into it.
And bada-bing, my friends. That’s it. Now it’s a board that is all your own. Of course you don’t have to use Mint, but c’mon. It’s mint! It’s pretty.
We are all for quick updates around here. And I mean quick. Like, I don’t want to spend more than ten minutes sometimes on a project. Updating your office decor is a quick and easy way to personalize your workspace, AND The Container Store is currently running their Orderly Office Sale, so this little board is on sale for $14.99! I know! Go and get it quick! And if you’re loving those air plant magnets (like me!), check out the tutorial for those over here!
