tight like unto a dish. a magnetic dish

magnetic bowls

so my dad showed up with a bunch of magnetic bowls.

and asked if i had a use for one.

and i said yes, and took one.

and went home.

and realized i needed about 30 more.


(found these at harbor freight but you can get some HERE)

all they needed was  a little shot of primer and then spray paint…

and then i put on in about each room of my house.

magnetic bowl filled


this one is my favorite. right by my makeup. i lose these stupid things everywhere. love that they have a special place (have you used these twisty bobby pins? amazing. two can hold all my hair…and i have cousin it amount of hair)

bobby pins

one in my junk drawer…for metal junk.

push pins

it would be cute if you have a wall to put all your kids stuff on. like a homework station

(did you know they sell magnetic paint? they do. it’s a primer too so you can paint over it and never know it’s there until you want to use it.) fridge magnet

one by the sewing machine… pins

which happens to be right by the file cabinet…which is metal. push pinss

you could use one for rings…or any jewelry (some stick some don’t–try it out beforehand) rings and then i have one for all those stray nails…screws…bolts…nuts…thats about all the tool knowledge i have.


so…what would you use your magnetic dish for?
