Works for Me Wednesday: Refrigerator Pictures

wfmwheaderThe following is a re-post in order to share this idea with WFMW participants:

The messy collage of pictures precariously held up by magnets all over my refrigerator has been getting on my nerves. This week I decided to try a new idea.

Sophie has a French memo board in her room where she puts pictures of her friends and cousins, as well as birthday cards, or presently, Valentine's cards. She did such a nice, neat job of arranging it, that I decided to figure out a way of attaching such a board to the fridge. I bought a board, found strips of magnets that I had saved, and with a glue-gun, attached a generous amount to the back of the board. Here is the result:





If you decide to try this idea and the magnets aren't strong enough, someone suggested in the comment section to try using adhesive velcro strips.

What a cool idea! My fridge looks so messy with the photos and magnets and artwork. I really like the way your memo board turned out.

That looks amazing. I'm definitely going to remember that one. I hate the look of a cluttered frig.

Our fridge drives my husband crazy, and those magnetic/plastic organizers are so expensive and uncreative. This is beautiful and practical! I may have to give this a try!!
