How to make a Magnetic Photo Board for Under $15

By: Diy maven Apr 06, 2009

The only thing you'll  need to buy to make this project is the piece of 3' x 4' sheet of galvanized steel, which the Jo's at Photojojo found at Home Depot for 14 bucks. You probably already have on hand the rest of the supplies, which include the following:

  • Pencil
  • Ruler
  • Drill and 1/4" or smaller bit
  • Piece of scrap wood
  • Hammer
  • Small nails or screws
  • Assorted magnets
  • Your favorite photos

Follow this jump to see the entire how-to. Also, the Jo's also remind us to be careful when handling the sheet of steel: it has especially sharp corners! For a somewhat similar project, check out this old how-to.

Miss DIY, you certainly know how to pick em! I have been wondering for a very long time how much a sheet of galvanized steel would cost me, but havent investigated due to my apparent inability to find what im looking for lol. for instance, i spent three hours today on a mission to find a 4 x 2 foot square of chicken wire! Home Depot, here i come!!!!
