Magnetic Chalkboard Menu + Cut It Out Giveaway!!

Magnetic Chalkboard Menu

I’m a sucker for curvy. Wait. Let me clarify. I’m not talking about body shapes. I’m talking about decor. I like a touch of straight modernism but I love curvy. I don’t really know why. I’m just drawn to it! See evidence of my love here and here. So when Cut It Out contacted me wanting to send me some of their products and sponsor a giveaway, I was all for it! Cut It Out is a fantastic shop that offers wood cut out frames, letters, numbers, and symbols. But seriously… have you seen their gorgeous curvy frames?? Cut It Out has beautiful frames in many shapes and sizes. AND at amazing prices! I’ve had my eye on these frames for a while so I quickly ordered my own to show their versatility. Check out my awesome Magnetic Chalkboard Menu!!!

(Sidenote: Aren’t my nieces’ drawings adorable!?)

Okay. Enough oogling. First, I ordered a 16×20 Balboa frame from Cut It Out. You could really do any of their shapes or sizes. I just wanted  a big substantial frame for my fridge.

Part of what is so awesome about these frames is that they come unfinished. So you can totally customize it to whatever your little heart desires. My little heart desired a mint and chocolate charcoal menu.

Supplies:

  • Cut It Out frame
  • Rare Earth Magnets (basically super strong magnets… I ordered these.)
  • Paint for the frame
  • Chalkboard paint
  • Paint Brush
  • E-6000 adhesive

Flip your frame over and take the backing out. Put a dab of E-6000 adhesive on the back of each magnet and place them around the frame.

Place the magnets around the frame evenly. Allow them to sit and dry for 2 hours.

Once the magnets are dry, flip your frame over. Apply 2 coats of paint to the frame, allowing drying time in between coats.

While the frame is drying, take your cardboard backing and paint on 2 coats of chalkboard paint.

Once the paint is dry, season your chalkboard by rubbing the side of the chalk all over the board and then wiping it off with a dry cloth. Place the chalkboard backing back into the frame and secure it. Place your now magnetic chalkboard on your fridge.

Mine stayed pretty securely but I was a little worried of it getting jostled with the door opening and closing. So I stuck two 3M velcro strips on the back to help hold it on.

Grab your chalk and go to town! Chalk it up. Doodle away. Just write on it… k?
