Magnet Paint Transforms Walls into Magnet Boards

by Paul Strauss

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.┬áThe 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.
