I recently purchased magnetic tins and I didn't have a plan to do anything with them when I bought them. As I sat and pondered how I could best use them, I realized these would be great for Nicole's dorm. She will be able to attach these to her mini refrigerator!
What the original tin looked like:
Back with the large magnet:
I first covered the plastic lid with painters tape so I didn't get paint on it. I then spray painted the tin with glossy gold. The glittery gold is adhesive vinyl. The circle is a little bit larger than 3 inches so that it slides in under the plastic and will stay there without extra tape.
Now all I need to do is get the little packets of salt, pepper and sugar!
