make-your-own-magnetic-makeup-board-cheap-frame by ailjkic,I would use a piece of sheet metal that you can get at any lowes or home depot and have it cut to the side of your frame. If you want it black you can paint it. also use heavy duty magnets that you use hot glued to the back of makeup to hold it on. For the baskets I might use the hooks made by 3m with adhesive on the back. by Jinx62

Paint a mirror frame with chalkboard paint. What a cool idea! Paint a dresser to match and then lean the mirror against the wall on top of the dresser to make the set look like one piece. The height of the mirror will draw the eye toward the ceiling making your room appear larger.    Designer's Tip: Prime the dresser with magnetic paint if you want to attach permission slips, tickets, or other loose paper. Paint over the magnetic paint with two by kerry.fitzpatrick1

Race car monogram wall art for kid's room. Would be easy to draw & paint in the road letter. Use a canvas or framed poster board. Or paint directly on a sheet of metal and add magnets to the bottom of cars so they can be moved all over the road. Frame and attach to studs in wall (low enough to be within child's reach) for sturdy, interactive wall art! by britney

Looking for a DIY project that also adds quick and clever organization? Go for a pegboard organizer: It can be adapted to a range of rooms (home office, kitchen, or garage, to name just a few), is easy to install, and can be painted to match existing decor. Before hanging, lay the pegboard piece flat and place to-be-stored items on it to ensure you have enough space. Attach it to wall studs or using wall anchors. by lorraine

Homemade artwork - Mix Tape; It doesn't get much simpler than this. Paint a large artist's canvas or piece of MDF in your favorite color. We used a calm beige shade of gray. Then wrap white tape around the canvas, crisscrossing the tape as you go. For an ultra-subtle contrast, paint a few of the resulting triangles in a slightly darker hue. by carmela

Story Stick for Polar Bear Polar Bear Print the page of your choice. Cut apart and laminate. Put a piece of velcro down the paint stick. Put another piece of velcro on the back of each story piece. Permanently attach the brown bear to the top. Hot glue works well for this. As you tell the story, have the children attach the character. by charlotte

Stacked Crate Shelves Wooden crates can be put to great use as a shelving unit. Honestly, this is probably one of the easiest shelves that you can build. You just need a couple (or however many you want) of wooden crates that you paint or stain to match your existing décor. Then just attach those shelves to the wall, stacking them for a great shelving unit that is fully functional and absolutely gorgeous.
