I have been dying to share this cute little project with you.
I got the inspiration from Ballard Designs magazine when I saw these cute little magnetic boards hanging above a desk.
I thought they definitely looked like a project I could create without the expensive $39.00 a piece price tag! (That’s $120.00 for the set, ladies, ouch!)
So I stored the idea in the back of my head.
This past week at work, my sweet boss, Mandy, asked me to help her re-do her office.
I teach music for a wonderful Mom’s Day Out program 2 days a week. My boys are there with me, and I absolutely love the chance to get out of the house and do something “different”. I have been blessed to work there for 4 years. It is at a wonderful church, and I truly love working in God’s house. I have never considered it “work”, but an honor to serve those precious little children and their families!
So when Mandy asked for my help, I was thrilled. Of course, she was thinking I could help her organize her materials and supplies, but I was thinking of painting the walls, hanging pictures, lamps, rugs, etc.! Oh the places my mind goes…
Well, I did talk her into painting the walls (since 3 of the walls were beige, one was blue, and there was a hideous flower border on top!)
Now I immediately thought about those Ballard’s Designs magnetic boards for her walls. It was a great opportunity to try out my idea.
I went out and got my materials and look at the result…
I LOVE THEM! And so does Mandy!
I’m going to add a cute little monogrammed “M” to the middle board.
What do you think?
They’re magnetic, so you can hang cards, notes, or pictures on them!
I had so much fun making them, that I decided to add these to my Etsy store. Do you think they will sell?
So I will be making lots of different kinds for my store in the next couple of weeks. Of course I will have to find some great PINK material for little girls (or big girls!) to add to my shop. I also want to make one covered in burlap! Love it!
Wouldn’t these be great for offices and dorm rooms?
I will let you know when I get them on Etsy to sell.
I will be selling them for less than HALF of what they sell for at Ballard Designs!
