Here’s another from Jeraldine, who earlier gave us the pretty Ingo.
She says, “I wanted a blackboard in my kitchen to quickly note shopping ideas. So I decided to paint the door of my Ivar cabinet as a blackboard. At the same time, I thought why not also making it magnetic? So I painted it in two steps: first the magnetic and second the blackboard special paint (not necessarily black) and it’s really great! The magnetic paint can be a bit expensive though.”
