You Will Need
1 Mark out the position of the notice board with masking tape.
2 Apply the first coat of magnetic paint with brush strokes in the same direction (we used Rust-Oleum Magnet Latex Primer), then leave to dry. Apply the next coat in the opposite direction, then leave to dry. Apply the third coat in the same direction as the first and leave to dry before painting the dark grey topcoat. Thoroughly mix the magnetic paint between coats.
3 Make the letter magnets while the paint is drying. Spray-paint wooden letters (available from hardware shops) white and glue onto magnetic sheets using craft glue.
4 Cut the letters out of the magnetic sheets using a craft knife.
Use chalk in a contrasting colour to write notes and messages on the wall.
