The garage doors on our back cottage were made of steel and windowless. I had an idea do how to improve them but did not want to spend $80.00 to do so. Last week the magmetic panels that I needed were reduces from $10.00 per item to $4.00 each. I immediately bought eight of them and the fun began.
Negative Space Turns Into Positive Curb Appeal
I measured the raised portion of the door panels (12 X 16 1/4) and cut the magnetic sheets accordingly.
Using a TSquare and painters tape I created the panes (negative space). When tapping make sure you follow the same pattern. I chose to do the horizontal stripe first and then the vertical one last. You could make a more elaborate design but I chose not to.
I took the eight sheets outside and painted them with black flat paint that was suitable for plastic. I let the paint dry for five minutes and removed the tape
I hung them up on the doors to finish drying.
I will use the extra magnetic pieces to cut out shapes, numbers and letters for my grandchildrens an we will play school using a whiteboard instead of a blackboard
