A Mini Kitchen Addition: Magnet Play

Hexagon Felt Magnets | PepperDesignBlog.com

A while back I used a unique set of felted hexagon magnets as inspiration for a succulent planter box for our outdoor table.

I loved the modern shape of the hexagons and was really happy with how the diy box turned out. Fast forward about a year and our dishwasher was feeling like it needed a little colorful attention (aka I was still thinking about those felted magnets that had me at hexagon back when) and I decided to support the awesome artist that created them and purchased a set. We don’t have a magnetic fridge (it’s stainless steel) but the dishwasher is just at eye level for Liv and these magnets give her a fun little puzzle activity to work on while I’m making breakfast or dinner.

Man I love those morning hair curls.

These magnets are pretty cool. I’m worried because I’m not entirely sure the artist makes them any more, but I came across this tutorial recently on how to make your own (out of business card magnets, no less) and have to give it a go. Looks very easy to replicate!

PS I have another little kitchen update to share after a productive President’s Day, I can’t wait.

PPS Hope you had a great Valentine’s Day as well! Kev surprised me with tickets to the theater, I also had a chance to visit him at work on site (he just recently started a job working for an architecture firm that’s designing a hospital) and it was really neat to see his new office space and tour the huge building being built just next to it. I wanted to check it out before ‘the skin went up’ (I learned that little terminology while there) aka before the outside walls and windows were added. We also went on a crazy incline hike (while carrying two children) the following day and I’m still feeling the burn…

    I remember that flower box. Still super pretty. Sounds like you had quite the weekend! Can’t wait to find out what else you’ve done to your (already awesome) kitchen. And you’re making me dream of summer talking about hikes. Can I send the snow your way? I’m sick of it already!
