Magnetic/Blackboard Wall Paint - That's Magic!

Recently I visited my friends gazillion pound house in Gurney Court Road, NCT Capital of St Albans - IMHO, and one of the many things I lusted over, that was actually achievable, was her magnetic wall!  To me it's genius!
Since Jasper started in the school system we've had loads of letters and dates and basic "stuff".  We used to use a corkboard and hang stuff but to me it looked ugly!   Obviously not including the QPR Calendar in that statement!
The Magnetic/Blackboard paint was the obvious answer.   It goes on black, obviously, and you can keep it like that if you wish, but I like the idea of being more subtle and painted over.
I'm loving it!
The magnets we had didn't all work as were not strong enough, but I found these brightly coloured ones on the net for around £10 for 16!
I love it, and thought I'd share :)
Enjoy! x

  1. I've never heard of this, is it just special paint? From a DIY shop?

    1. We got it from Homebase I think, you can leave it as a blackboard which is also magnetic if you want, we love it :)

  3. Thanks a lot for sharing. Magnetic paint seems a great idea. But how does it really work? Does it need to be double coated in order to stick on those magnets?

    1. To be honest I had to search for very strong magnets but they weren't expensive and they work a treat. I still love my magnetic wall :)
      Thanks for passing by!
