A Pinterest Production - DIY Fridge Frame Magnets

Ok, Pinterest, I'll admit it - I'm hooked! If you know what the terms pins and boards mean, and have a list of categories, you are more than likely hooked too. And for those very rare few whom have not heard of Pinterest, you really should check it out!

Like many muses before, Pinterest sparks my creativity. It pushes it into overdrive and screams, "You really can do this!" It makes me think of how I can create decorations, enticing recipes, and beauty within my life and my home.

My boards are now overflowing with pins, and its definitely time to put them to use. Each week or two, I'm going to offer up A Pinterest Production in hopes to deliver a quality creation. I'll share the original Pinterest link and then show you my own finished product. Feel free to follow in the creativity and share your own finished piece!

This week's Production: DIY Fridge Frame Magnets

This pin comes from Vintage Glamorous. They were created to add a touch of beauty to the mundane (chore lists & calendars), as well as a touch of whimsy (children's masterpieces). At Vintage Glamorous, they used several different sizes and styles of frames. I used what I had on hand, but I will be adding a larger one to "frame" my monthly calendar.

About my production:

I recycled two 5 x 7 inch frames I purchased from a garage sale. They are much prettier in the crisp white than they originally were. I had a leftover can of spray paint (Krylon Ivory) used for our church's Christmas Play; you will definitely need a few coats. I removed the glass and the backing from the frames; then, I added magnetic strips I borrowed from my husband's tool box (Shush! Don't tell him!). Viola, production finished!
Total production price: $0.50 (If you factor in the original purchase price of the spray paint, than $4.99. I can't add in the magnet strip because I honestly have no idea.)

I love this production because it allows for absolute creativity. The sizes, styles, and colors can all very. You can create monochromatic schemes or a complete rainbow. Enjoy this Pinterest Production because it is definitely easy and quite useful! And if you have any unique frames lying around, let me know, I might be interested!
