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.
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".
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.
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.
I use my refrigerator
My DH keeps throwing them away, a few at a time...thinking I'll never notice
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?
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.
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!
