Custom Herb Magnet Board... $38.00

2 Hours
Yep...I'm an organizational queen! I really can't stand disorder...I can't think straight! I've been seeing organizational posts all over, but have never seen one to "FIT" an area. This was when I decided to make an Herb Magnet board on the side of a cabinet that would open up space in a kitchen cabinet. So, when I was doing the kitchen I contacted a Sheet Metal Worker in my area until I found someone who would take a piece of sheet metal and clamp the sides over (So they weren't sharp), then I could make a magnet board for herbs. This cost me $38.00 to get done, once I gave him the exact size of the side of the cabinet (make sure its a perfect rectangle or square and not different sizes on the top and bottom), then you'll just needed to pick it up, bring it home and hang it. I then attached magnet herb containers I got at World Market (They even come in colors...I just got stainless)! I will tell you that they sell the same ones at Bed Bath and Beyond, but they are $2.99 a piece and at World Market they are only $1.99. I then found these mesh magnet holders at T.J. Maxx ($4.99), they are great but only came in ugly colors, so I bought 4 of them anyhow...even thou they were ugly and spray painted them in a stainless steel paint and ...VOILA...FANCY PANTS MESH HOLDERS!
Here is the Herb Magnet Board!
I purchased these metal letters at Hobby lobby and added magnets to the backs!
Here is a picture of the herb containers!
Here are the mesh containers from T.J. MAXX
All painted and hanging pretty:)
I love the way this has opened up space in the cabinets and has decorated the kitchen up in its own way!

    How is the large metal piece attached to the cabinet?

    How about using empty glass baby food jars? Glue the magnet to the top of the lid and snap onto the metal sheet. You can see the contents and you're not paying for the spice jars.

    I bought some at World Market a few years ago. I think they were $2 each. I agree— they are a bit hard to turn the lids to the right spot—on place for sprinkling and one for pouring or spooning. Still love the idea tho.

    You can get magnetic containers like these at Dollar Tree.
