Refrigerator doors serve as magnet boards for many of us - but, of course, there are other forms of magnet boards. Here are some of my favorites.
Let's start with the animals. The Purple Cow has 10 wonderful animal magnetic art boards to choose from - plus a fairy and a flower.
The Orange County Museum of Art sells this deer magnet board from Decor Craft. [via Apartment Therapy] Update on Sept. 5, 2010: It seems this product is no longer available.
And the Conran Shop has this sheep-shaped magnetic board. Update on Sept. 5, 2010: Sadly, this product seems to have disappeared, too.
These nest-and-egg magnet boards come with bird-shaped magnets. (Having just finished reading a wonderful book about Darwin and birds, this one caught my attention even more than it normally would have.)
Moving on from the animals, Beyond the Fridge has a wide range of magnetic boards, in various sizes (and shapes). The one above is the largest. [via Retro To Go]
Days Gone By has magnetic boards with olives, coffee beans, and more.
Magnique has lots of options; the ones that caught my eye were the framed leather magnetic boards.
Over on Etsy, MooreMagnets has magnet boards made with many different fabrics and sizes.
And Etsy seller Polarity has a number of magnet boards made with recycled materials. This one with the map is my personal favorite.
And finally, as a map aficionado, I appreciated this magnetic world map board.
