I had gotten a magnetic poetry set as a gift last Christmas and was at a quandary as to where to put it. My refrigerator is already overrun with magnets and pictures so I had to come up with a new idea. My first thought was to buy a sheet of metal but being the cheapskate that I am, I found a rusty cookie sheet that I was going to toss and decided to experiment.
I took a steel wool pad to clear off most of the rust and then covered it with a Rust covering textured spray paint. I finished it off with some celestial stickers and a good coat of Mod Podge. I drilled some holes in the sides and ran ribbon through to hold it so that I could hang it on the wall.
