    I followed the link to your blog site, but couldn’t find this project. It seems that all the posts are linear, without a search function.

    I want to make Magnetic Whiteboard Closet Doors. Been scouring the local resale sites for 3 identical (giant, 6-8’ x 3-4’) actual whiteboards to attach to plain, sliding closet doors.

    Thought about whiteboard paint, but saw a lot of dissatisfied reviews about texture (not a good thing - makes cleaning difficult). Plus, I thought I’d have to forego the magnetic feature.

    I’d love to read your post about this project, if there are more details. Can you help me find it? Thanks!
