Maybe you want a memo board of some sort - a magnetic board, a chalkboard - but you have an unusual sized space, or you want something bigger than the ones readily available.
One option: Use magnetic paint (or magnetic primer paint) to change any surface into a magnetic board. You can also use chalkboard paint, dry erase (whiteboard) paint, or a magnetic/chalkboard paint combination.
Here's some good reading on the subject:
- A picture of an office with a magnetic wall, created using Rust-Oleum's primer; Rust-Oleum also makes chalkboard paint and dry erase paint [via Let's Talk Organizing]
- A discussion about magnetic paint that branches out into the other paint options, and an older post on the same subject
- A whole wall painted with chalkboard paint
- Some ideas on decorating with magnetic paint in the kitchen, in a child's room, etc.
- A wall calendar created with magnetic paint, and another with chalkboard paint
- Chalkboard paint on a refrigerator door (picture above)
- Mural magnets, for both decor and interactive play: underwater sets, flower sets, and individual pieces including an adorable kiwi bird
