We found this panel from a bi-fold door at our local Habitat for Humanity Store.
Mr. Sensible made a holder for the markers in between the top and bottom panels.
Then I painted the door with some green and grey here and there and painted A.S. Chalk Paint in old white over the whole thing. Sanding off some of the old white so the other colors can show through. Then put on a clear wax.
It not only is a Magnetic Board but is also a Dry Erase board. You can erase dry erase markers with Windex and a paper towel. Who knew!!
Here you can see close up the colors and the cool magnets I found at our local Antique Mall.
