In the era of do-it-yourself inventions, sheet metal is one of the more versatile DIY products that can make the ordinary and mundane into extraordinary within a matter of minutes. Here are just a few of the ways sheet metal can be used.
1. Make a magnetic board
It’s easy to turn sheet metal, which is already magnetized into a gorgeous magnetic board, something that can cost lots of moola at the stores. Simply take a piece of sheet metal and tape your favorite decorative paper to the sheet, then frame. It’s as simple as one, two, three, and turns an awkward wall space into a fuctional piece of art.
2. Cover your kitchen cabinets
If you love the industrial look of sheet metal, then there’s no better way to bring the urban environment into your home by using sheet metal to recover and refinish your cabinetry.
