Magnet Board And Vases

I have been wanting to make a magnet board for some time, but didn't realize sheet metal was so pricey! Maybe I am looking in the wrong places? I asked Hubby if there ever happened to be any scraps around his work site (He is a bridge builder-Civil Engineer:) And he said sometimes. I think he was getting really tired of me asking him first thing when he got home if he found any of this precious metal! So, yesterday while browsing Good Will a light bulb went off when I saw this ugly tray for a buck!
A little white spray paint, and I have the perfect little magnet board for my laundry room!

I have seen these vases numerous times around blog land and wanted to give it a shot, so I picked these up at Good Will as well.


A little of hubby's twine was all it took to spruce these cheap vases up!
