I saw this post MONTHS ago about making a magnetic chalkboard and knew it was a great idea. I found an old mirror at the antique mall near by. I love the size and shape. It would be perfect over my desk and would help keep me on task for the day.
It was old and beautiful. I removed the mirror first. Then I stepped on an old nail....which led to this post. Please remember to wear shoes when you are working!
I put on several coats of gloss white paint. And then it stopped. Finding the sheet metal for it was harder than I thought...my hardware store didn't carry it. Dad to the rescue! But he has no sense of urgency to get it...so I waited like a good, patient daughter.
