Magnetic Recipe Card Holder

Good Day!  I was looking around the Internet the other day and found this great idea for my next project!  I had the magnetic paint, I had the picture frame (actually it was a mirror), so I decided to put them together and create my own recipe holder.  The one I saw was selling on Etsy for around $18 USD, which was not in my price range.  Here is what I did...

First I taped off the mirror so that I could apply the magnetic paint.

Next, I added 4 thin coats of paint.  I let each coat dry before applying the subsequent coats.

I then decided that I wasn't too keen on the gold frame (I really should have figured that out BEFORE I started).  I applied two coats of silver spray paint to the frame, making sure the magnetic piece was covered properly.
And that was that.  Pretty easy project that cost me nothing as opposed to 18 dollars!

Now I have a great recipe card holder that's super chic!

Enjoy your day of creating!
