7 Multi use...

I bought this LUNS writing/magnetic board a month ago. I had done a lot of research, but I couldn't really find anyone that I liked. But the Luns on Ikea was everything I wanted. It was magnetic and write able. And the price $14.99. I did find one that could only be written on, and it retailed for $53.54!

Instead of keys I hang my Shoehorn on the hook for easy access.

But I didn't like the color, so I painted it white. Then I painted the hooks underneath brown. The final thing I wanted was somewhere to hang cards or pictures of the month. I wanted to hang up pictures of those who have birthday so I wont forget. Like I have told before, I forget everything, so this board is going to jog my memory.
After I had painted it I screwed two screws on each side of the frame, then painted the screws and wrapped a steel wire on the screws and then I had a place to hang my pictures.

I am not done. When you have a magnetic board you need magnets. And I didn't want boring ones. So I made them myself. I used silk-flowers,steel wire,quick glue,beads,ribbons, stickers,crochet flower, decoupage stickers,magnetic sheets and borders. Everything can be bought at Panduro Hobby, except the silk flowers witch was bought in a home decoration store. It is suppose to be used to decorate tables!

I love Vebjørn Sand and Marianne Aulies paintings. They have made more affordable paintings that the everyday man can buy. But I didn't want to pay 200$. So when the sale brochure from Bohus came in the mail, I cut out the pictures and glued them on a magnetic sheet.

I like being creative. If I cant use my body I want to use my brain. So besides books, this is my way to keep myself sain. And if I am damned with a life filled with esophagus spasms, then I am going to have something pretty to look at.
