Months ago, I bought two identical cabinet doors at the Restore for $3 each. I knew I wanted to use them in the office somehow to keep things nice and symmetrical. I needed a place to hang important notes, business cards, invitations, whatnot. But a big board wasn't my choice. This nook's wall is quite visible to the kitchen and living area... I wanted something a little neater.
I got this.
First I primed and spray painted both cabinets with Heirloom White spray paint.
Then with cabinet door #1, I cut a piece of adhesive cork to fit inside the middle area.
The second cabinet was done with a piece of cut galvanized steel. I cut it to size with regular scissors (couldn't find the tin snips). Oh, I probably dulled the blades, but it went quickly and easily... less than 2 minutes. I spray painted the metal with Heirloom White, then used spray adhesive to lay white burlap on it. I wrapped and trimmed the edges, and using hot glue, I pressed the covered metal onto the cabinet.
Now, it's a magnetic board! I found some old pebbles and used strong glue to hold them onto the magnets.
The office is now complete. New boards....
And now my office is neat and ready for
