Boo in a Box Magnet Chalkboard

Good Morning from the Front Porch!!!!

Rhonda Merry here with a question for you???
Now that some of you have had a chance to open your
box of Front Porch Kit goodies, what will your first project be?  

Me? I went straight to the Surprise Surface in the kit.... the Altered Metal Tray.

We've had several people ask if it will hold magnets.  
The answer is YES! There are 4 magnets included in
the kit for you to create with. 

I designed a magnetic chalkboard.

 I primed the tray and then used  
Rust-o-leum Chalkboard Spray Paint.

I used the included magnets for the spider bow and 
flower, and for the chalk rope and sharpener.

(Did you know that chalk can be sharpened without
 crumbling?  I was excited to discover this little tidbit.)

I then grabbed sheet magnets from all of the fridge
 advertisements and football schedules that have 
accumulated over the years.  They are perfect for
 magnet boards because they take well to any adhesive, 
run through the die machines easily and store 
well if you want to create a collection
 of scenes for more holiday decorating.

Once I made all of my pieces, it was time to 
decorate and add my reminders.

I love it!!!
