When we were younger our Grandparents were avid travelers. They trekked to all 50 states (mainly in a sweet red panel van) and always brought back magnets for their refrigerator from their travels. The grandchildren would rearrange them time and time again and was always the highlight of a trip to their home, so when we came across magnetic kitchen cabinets, the nostalgia came rushing back.

Flickr member Miss_Curse_10 is an avid traveler and has many magnets from her adventures. Check out the notes on the original photo to see how they're organized on each panel.

This simple cabinet upgrade is a quick way to be able to hold recipes in plain view when cooking or even remind yourself of any upcoming weekly activities. It's an easy diy project for renters and homeowners alike, all you'll need is a sheet of metal flashing from the hardware store and a pair of tin snips!

Even if you're not into the look up high, why not adorn a few cabinet fronts a bit lower down to help keep kids entertained while you're getting dinner ready? It could also be a great addition to the side of a kitchen island!

Do you like the look? Or think magnets are best kept on refrigerators and home offices?
