Hammer Edges Under

On the back side of the magnet board, hammer flashing down, bending flush with the shelving.

Attach Picture-Hanging Kit

Tape picture hanging kit to back of magnet board on center, approximately one inch from top. Nail picture hanger to magnet board with included nails. Remove tape and hang magnet board on wall.

Make Ledges, Shelves and Backsplashes

Now that you have the basic process mastered, you can create a multitude of magnetic kitchen items. Using tin snips, cut metal flashing to desired length. Drill two holes in back of flashing and screw directly to wall. For longer shelves, drill holes and attach every 24 inches to wall. Tip: Magnetic accessories including hooks, canisters, clips and holders are readily available. To make a non-magnetic accessory magnetic, simply glue magnetic tape to the back.
