Often times when we check out Instructables, the tutorials can seem a bit more than the average bear is ready to take on. But this tutorial for making a standard poster and frame into a functional work of art while jazzing up the standard "bulletin board" is one that can be done easily and quickly. Click through for more...

The original poster required an area to hold cds although we think this project would be great for notes, pictures or all those other small things that never seem to have a home.

Here's what you'll need to get started:

Parts and Materials

* 1, poster frame with an acrylic face (24 x 36 in.)
* 1, cool poster/picture (24 x 36 in.)
* 1, flat sheet of galvanized tin (24 x 36 in., 24 - 30 gauge )
* neodymium magnets (between 1 - 2 lbs pull force)
* 1, roll masking tape (1" wide)
* leather work gloves to handle tin
* hot glue or white glue
* tin snips (unneeded if tin is correct size)
* tape measure (unneeded if tin is correct size)
* straight edge (unneeded if tin is correct size)
* marking pen (unneeded if tin is correct size)
* hammer and block of wood (not pictured, unneeded if tin is correct size)
