Displaying a Large Magnet Collection

We have recently moved to a new house and I need some advice about displaying my large magnet collection in the Kitchen. I have a large wall that I'm going to use but need ideas on how to display them and what I can use.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Darla from Grand Prairie, TX

I may be mistaken but I am pretty sure that I saw some new paint on a home decorating show that was magnetic?? We had those poetry type words in our bathroom and my husband put up a piece of sheet metal, not that it was glamorous but you can paint it.

Oh, I found a link!

This is just one, I typed in magnetic paint in Google and this was the first one I came up with. Have fun!

You could get some old cookie sheets at garage sales or thrift stores. Paint them a bold glossy color. When dry hang them on your wall & attach all your magnets on them. Could hang them vertically or horizontally & in clusters or scattered all around your walls. I've seen magnets displayed on cookie sheets at yard sales. Hope this helps.

Could you either reface a couple of your upper cabinets with metal, or mount a framed metal sheet on the cabinet doors to use as a display?

Thank you for all the great suggestions. I'm thinking about maybe using some cookie sheets. In the future I'll try to send in a picture.

Paint the wall with magnetic paint. It can be purchase at lowes or home depot. You will have to paint over the magnetic paint because it goes on black.

I have 167 in my collection. I get scrap sheet metal, cover it with contact paper (I use marble print) and hang them on the wall. I use twine and "Hercules Hooks".

I used the expensive magnet paint and 2 coats barely holds up the lightest magnets. I like the cookie sheet idea, you could not only paint them, you could add decorative trims, etc. to make them more appealing.
