Project Post 22: Drip Pan Magnet Board

I saw this post on this blog, which led me to this pin:

The author in the blog post made her drip pan a chalkboard, but since we already have a large chalkboard (here), and the driveway is Levi's chalkboard, I decided just to leave it alone and let it be a magnet board (much less work).
The drip pan is from Wal-mart (automotive department) and is less than $10. There are a lot of things you could do with this! I love it - and so far Levi does too.

I made those "play" letters out of just wooden letters and scrapbook paper (both from Hobby Lobby). Don't look close because they bubbled up a bit from the glue/mod podge. I was going to make "learn" but decided "play" was one less letter - thus easier :)

Levi had fun with the magnet board. I kept hearing "this is fuuun," but unfortunately it wasn't my 16-month-old making complete sentences; it was my he was doing this:

And this is how we feel about that:


  1. Cute post! I love that last pic of Levi's little feetsies :)

  2. LOVE this! we may have to borrow this idea in the future! :)

  3. Thanks guys! Meg - feel free. I borrowed it from someone else! I realize not everyone wants a drip pan screwed to their living room wall:) but I've noticed other people put it like in the laundry room or by the back door

  4. Twofer! Entertaining both the men in your life. hahah
