If you are like me you have put a felt letter board in your cart and almost pushed ‘checkout’ at least three times. I really want one! I just cannot justify the price right now. I knew I could use it for so many things but felt like I could create an easy alternative while I convince myself it’s worth the investment. Enter the DIY Magnetic Letter Board!
All you need to complete this DIY is magnetic letters, a magnetic board and some spray paint. I actually used whiteboard paint on the magnetic board because I wanted it to double as both! You could use chalkboard paint the same way if you’d like! The whiteboard paint needs to be applied a certain way but it’s not difficult, has a pretty white finish, and works just like a normal white board!

I started by painting my magnetic board with the white board paint. I used a foam brush and have since learned this is not ideal. After I saw this left streaks in the paint I asked Rustoleum how they suggest applying it (probably should have thought to do that BEFORE I started painting but I get a little excited.) They let me know a small foam roller for ‘smooth finishes’ is the best option. They were right. So do that!
While this was drying I sprayed my letters with Rose Gold spray paint. Do yourself a favor and just buy 10 cans of rose gold spray paint. You’ll want them.
After everything has dried; you’re done! It’s really simple and I can satisfy my felt board urge for a little while! I wish I would have made it before my little one was born so I could do his monthly photos with it! Maybe with the next little one.
