3 Wise Ways To Use Magnetic Paint
The possibilities are endless with this design trend
There are so many new products and fads that come and go, it's hard to keep up. Have you heard about magnetic paint? It's ordinary paint mixed with tiny iron dust particles so you're basically coating whatever you're painting with a thin layer of metal.
It's been around for a while, but homeowners and designers have picked up on it recently because of it's versatility—you can use it to build a memo board for the study area, to showcase your magnet collection, or even to create a unique way to display family photos in the living room.
To convince you to jump on the bandwagon, we've come up with three ways you can get creative with it around your home:

Make a doodle board
If you're tired of scrubbing your walls clean of toddler art, consider giving them a doodle area where they are free to "write" whatever they like. Experiment with using magnetic paint on one of your walls and switch pens for colorful letter magnets they can use.

Build a spice rack
Save some counter space by creating a spice organizer that you can hang on the wall. You can do something as simple as covering the underside of your kitchen cabinets with magnetic paint or you can try building a more fancy piece complete with an intricate frame.
