DIY Magnet Organizational Board

Magnet Organization Board
the place to put all your coupons/reciepts/notes and more...

I don't know how you keep track of all your coupons, notes, shopping lists, receipts and all the other little odds and ends that seem to get stock piled collected on a day-to-day basis but at our house...all those little "things" kept piling up in stack on my kitchen counter or written on sticky notes and slapped on the fridge or cabinet door or sometimes to Mr. AKMs forehead :) 

There was no true rhyme or reason to how it was handled.  It was more of a bad habit than anything.  Well, I decided it was high time to put the bad habit to rest!

I absolutly LOVE how colorful it is...and that EVERYTHING is in one place!  LOVE IT! 

So here is how it came to be...

I had the black frame already and had been trying to figure out what I wanted to do with it.  Then my sister mentioned wanting to make a magnet board for her daughter...and I thought "I can do that!"  But I honestly didn't know where I would put one...then my mom purchased the AWESOME Michael Miller fabric from Hypernoodle.  She has the CUTEST fabric like EVER!  If you are into sewing you must go check out the stuff on her website.  You won' be dissappointed.

Anyway, back to my story...the minute I saw the fabric I knew what I had to I ran to Lowes to get me a sheet of metal.  And then it went something like this...

AKM Note:  Please wear gloves when cutting the sheet metal as the edges can get pretty sharp...not that the new blood stain on the work bench is mine or anything. 

Then step back, smile and admire all your handi-work!


I am excited to finally have a little organization going in my life...and a bright, happy place to put it all!
