I have had this magnetic board for a really long time. I think that I have painted it at least three different times to match my décor. In my family room, I wanted to go with vines/leaves, so I wanted to put them on the board. I really like how it turned out (even if it wasn’t exactly how I pictured it in my head).
This is how I did it:
The first thing I did was painted it white (it was red before). I bought this magnetic board but you could easily make it, using this tutorial for the frame and then a piece of sheet metal.
I then did a layer of green paint. I wanted it to be lighter, I was going for tone on tone so I didn’t put a thick coat on, just enough to cover the white.
Using my Cricut, I cut the vines out of white vinyl.
I put the vinyl onto the frame. Using the scraper tool, I made sure there wasn’t any air bubbles and that paint wouldn’t get under it.
Here it is with all the vinyl.
I then put on another coat of green paint.
Using my hook tool, I carefully took off the vinyl. This is where it didn’t turn out exactly how I expected. The vinyl took off the green paint. I was hoping for a lighter green for the leaves. But then I really liked the look of the white with the green in it, so I was happy that the paint came off a little bit.
I stuck it on the wall, made some flower magnets and added some pictures.
I love how it turned out!
I made the flowers out of felt using this tutorial.
