Turn Your Wall Into Cool Magnetic Art DIY

This DIY magnetic wall is achieved by using magnetic paint.  The instructions for this project is for a map but you can go wherever you want with this.  It is also interactive by adding small and interesting magnets to shift around.  Thanks to Bigger Than the Three of Us for this creative idea.

Hi Guys! Did you have a great weekend? Hope so! Our weekend was full of projects, family time, and some time at the pool. It was pretty much a perfect mix of things for a weekend. Anyways, I’m here today to share a special project that we just completed in our little man’s room… a Magnetic Map Wall DIY! Our little guy has been in love with maps, street names, how to get from a to z, etc., for quite some time. We thought the perfect thing for his room would be a map mural to help foster that love. So, we jumped right in to create one. Hope you love it as much as we do!

Awesome, right?! Before I get right to the tutorial, let’s go back to his room before.

Nothing was wrong with his room before, but it had no personality. It had  a few things that we had DIY’d (the floating nightstand, the oversized print, the car switch, and the DIY loft), but nothing on the major wall in his room. I believe (as Luke constantly pushes me toward it) that all rooms need a bit of breathing room. But, this wall just had way too much breathing room. I proposed that we do a map mural and Luke was on board.

First thing we did was to move all the furniture away from the wall.

Next, we used Rust-oleum Magnetic Primer and rolled it on.
