Vintage Tins as Functional Fridge Magnets

Vintage Tins as Functional Fridge Magnets

I always say, my fridge is magnetic for a reason. It's a great way to stay organized, and since you can't see our refrigerator from the rest of the house, I plastered the front with calendars, invitations, and take-out menus. Soon enough, organization was the last thing happening on my fridge, so I tailored it down to just a dry erase calendar and to do lists. When I saw Ez's magnetic tin DIY on Creature Comforts, I thought it would the perfect addition to a beautifully organized refrigerator.

The DIY is very simple, all you need is a tin or two and some magnets. It's so simple, that Ez's 11-year-old daughter came up with the idea! I'm sure you could even use an old Band-Aid tin (and maybe wrap it in some pretty fabric or paper), but I'll be on the lookout for a pretty vintage tin next time I go antiquing.

If you haven't been to Ez's blog, Creature Comforts, you are in for a treat! She shares lots of visual and color inspiration, as well as simple DIYs and free printables.
