Once you've settled on a frame, now you can focus on the magnetic message board itself. You have some choices to make here: If you simply want to be able to use magnets to hang notes and messages, then just about any magnetic sheet metal will do, such as galvanized metal, steel, and some stainless steels. If you also want to be able to write on the board's surface, you will have to obtain the enameled sheet metal used for dry-erase boards. Make sure the metal is magnetic. Dry-erase metal may be difficult to obtain as raw and uncut, nevertheless, try your local arts and crafts stores or even local sheet metal shops. If none is to be found, you may have to purchase a dry-erase board from your favorite big-box store and strip it down in order to customize it with your frame. Again, use a magnet to make sure your board is magnetic before you buy it.
Last step! Insert the message board and backing into the picture frame, add some creative, funky magnets, and there you have it! Finished! Unless you chose to go with dry-erase, then you may want to attach some markers. Buy some Velcro squares from just about anywhere and stick one to the marker and one to the board. Now you a place to attach your marker.
