Magnetic Memo Board

I found this platter in an old house that my mom is renovating. I didn't really have plans for it but it was big, magnetic and it pretty good shape so I threw it in the car and brought it home.

I sanded it down a little bit and gave it a good coat of Espresso Brown spray paint. Can I just get an AMEN for spray painting weather coming back?

I wasn't really sure how I could hang it so I tried hot gluing a sawtooth hanger on the back.

It worked!

To make the magnets, I grabbed a few wooden circles and glued a magnet to the back and Mod Podged some cute scrapbook paper to the fronts. Easy peasy!

Check out the link parties where I am sharing this week!
