How to turn a washing machine
lid into a chalk/Magnetic Board
Lucky for me my husband saves
everything! In this case he had saved the lid
from our old washer and a front panel. Being metal
I thought how perfect to make a place to use magnetic
letters on. Especially since magnets don't work on
stainless steel refrigerators! At first I was going
to just spray paint it a cute color, but then I got
the bright idea to use chalkboard paint and
make it dual purpose.
Step 1: Lightly sand the front side of washing
machine lid and then wipe it down with a damp rag.
Step 2: Spray 2-3 coats of chalkboard
paint onto the lid and allow it to dry.
Step 3: Paint a wood scrabble tile holder and glue it to
the bottom of the board to hold the chalk.
Step 4: String ribbon through pre existing holes on
either side of the lid and tie a bow.
