A List Apart
"I'm never disappointed by Photojojo." -- Dave Johnson
We are known far and wide for our love of shiny metal objects.
And some of you may have heard a rumor that we also like photos.
So, naturally, when we found a big olâ€™ piece of shiny sheet metal at the hardware store,
Enter the magnetic bulletin board: huge, affordable, and so easy to make you just won’t believe it.
What You’ll Need
Note of caution (because we love you so):
Also, this project wonâ€™t work if you get aluminum by mistake. Bring a magnet with you to the store — if the magnet donâ€™t stick, it ainâ€™t steel.
Step 1: Mark the Metal Sheet
Then make a mark in the middle of each long edge, 1 inch from the edge.
Step 2: Drill the Holes
Using the mark as a guide, drill a hole in the sheet of metal. Repeat for the remaining 5 marks.
Step 3: Put It Up
Hang it vertically or horizontally; we ainâ€™t picky. If youâ€™re driving into drywall, use wall anchors or ask the friendly bearded guys at the hardware store for pointers.
Step 4: Cover It With Photos
Yay! Magnets and photos, a match made in heaven.
