Why do weekend projects always end up taking until the following Thursday to complete?
Maybe it’s just us but we can never seem to complete a project in the estimated time.
Our family began collecting magnets several years ago as a keepsake from the all the places we visited.
After putting on the most recent magnets from Rome, London, and Berlin our collection looked like this…
It hasn’t been displayed in our new house (which we’ve been in for 3 years) so the mess was never really a problem before.
That is, until I decided that WE. MUST. COMPLETE. a weekend project and so… a new magnet board it was!
I took a 36 x 24 inch picture I bought at Goodwill for $5 and popped out the picture.
Next we bought a sheet of metal ($20) at Home Depot and my husband cut it down to size.
He then nailed the metal into place.
And voila! 6 days later our weekend project was complete!
Looks like we are going to have to travel a lot more to fill this up.
Actually, I’ve got a list going of the places I, We, Us, and/or & Them have gone but forgotten to buy magnets for: Fayetteville, AR, Seattle, WA, Calloway Gardens in Georgia, Ann Arbor, MI, Gulf Shores, AL, New Mexico, Virginia, and many more.
But here’s a few of what we do have:
Las Vegas, Fort Worth, Chicago, New Orleans
Louisville, Graceland, Scotland, the USS Alabama
Mammoth Caves, Toronto, San Francisco, Water Color, FL
Here’s the before (the picture just got moved to the dining room)
Can’t wait to figure out our next 6 day project!
