Technically I should title this post Metalize your Walls. The crafty team over at Kling Magnetics in Chatham, New York, have devised a paint that enables magnets to adhere to it. Magic Wall Magnetic Paint is actually a dark grey primer that you can top coat with your favorite paint. Great for kids rooms, offices and maybe even kitchens. If you love putting magnets on your refrigerator, just image if you could do the same with a wall or an entire room. The possibilities are endless. I plan to paint all of our downstairs with it and then get 1000 of those magnetic poetry kits to cover our walls in limericks of questionable taste. Prices range from about $25 for 16 ounces to $93 for a gallon. Sold at Michael’s Craft Stores, Sherwin William’s, and Do It Best Hardware. Also available from the Kling Magnetics web site. Thanks to Narineh for the clever tip!
About Marc Lyman
Marc grew up under a brave single mom who "encouraged" home improvement on the family home. Early toddler gifts included a tool set, and even a cordless Bosch drill when cordless drills first came out. In grade school (give or take a few years), Marc's mom said, "We need to cut down some trees. . . . here's a chainsaw." A father figure also involved Marc in many home improvement projects, including a summer of home remodeling in Palo Alto, CA. Toss in some Obsessive Compulsive personality traits researching everything home improvement related. The end result: a genetically pre-disposed, socially sculpted home improvement machine!
