A Corrugated Metal Project Challenge

Todays challenge was to make a project using a piece of corrugated metal.

Coming up with a project was the easy part, spelling corrugated ... not so easy!

Welcome to the July Project Challenge where 6 DIYers are creating a project using corrugated metal!




I began my project by attaching 2 boards together to use as my backing piece then giving it a white wash using milk paint.

I drilled holes in all four sides of the corrugated metal and a small chalkboard then screwed them to the white washed board.

I made magnets using small strong magnets attached to vintage Bingo pieces.

The next step was to add a ledge for chalk using a small piece of a Scrabble shelf that I painted red and dark waxed to match the red in the Bingo pieces.

I put a hanger on the back and my corrugated project is the perfect little memo board for the kitchen or entry way.

For sale at the shop and craft fairs, I added a string with a chalk pouch.

  1. I LOVE this! Can I ask if you can buy small pieces of corrugated metal like that somewhere or did you have a big piece that you cut down?

    1. Thanks Jill... I find most of my pieces from garage sales, thrift stores, etc... sometimes I take apart found items and keep the pieces.

  2. Your project is just so cute! The wash on the wood really makes it look like reclaimed wood, which I love! Painting the chalk holder to match your magnets was such a great touch too!
