I had taken apart two boards that were bound by this strip of metal. A lovely gentleman helped me get all of the tacks out! Anyway, I sort of somewhat flattened it out and covered it with some material I had laying around. I used hot glue to secure the material and add on a bit of ribbon to hang it! It's pretty sturdy, I was honestly a bit surprised! She uses it to put her favorite comics on right now, but I'm sure that will change! :D
This could be made a bit sporty for a boys room as well! I made the magnets out of some magnet rounds from some store or another! They have to be heavier magnets than, say, advertising magnets! They are embellished with some scrapbook tabs! :D
Anyway, I hope you like! Any suggestions about where to find more around house metal items to re-purpose? You could always flatten out cans, that would make an interesting piece of decor!
