Magnet Paint Transforms Walls into Magnet Boards


For those of us with modern, stainless steel fridges, we can only stick our refrigerator magnets to the ugly sides – and if yours happens to be recessed into the wall like ours is, you’re pretty much screwed. But if you whip out a can of Magnet Paint, you can make any wall or flat surface into a magnet-friendly place.


Developed by Japan’s Colorworks[JP], Magnet Paint goes on in two coats, a basecoat that contains the metal particles, followed by a topcoat that contains the color. Just pick any wall, and you’ll be able to slap magnets up on it like it was an old metal fridge. The idea is perfect for kid’s rooms as well as office walls. It even looks like they offer a version that combines chalkboard paint with Magnet Paint.


At this point, I’m not sure where you can find Colorworks’ Magnet Paint outside of Japan, but it looks like there are a couple of similar products already available here in the U.S.
