diy: dishwasher magnets
The mundane task of doing the housework, like laundry and washing dishes, is completely endless; and while I can't take your chores away, I can give you something pretty to look at while you are doing them! And if you are lucky enough to have anyone else helping you out, I can also help with that one question everyone asks while opening the dishwasher door-"are these clean or dirty??"
DIY DISHWASHER MAGNETS
SUPPLIES YOU WILL NEED: ~ Mini Ornate Frame ($1.50 at Michael's) ~ Chalkboard paint (or whatever color you like:) ~ Paint brush ~ Adhesive backed, heavy duty magnet (save $ by using the magnet off the back of a refrigerator shopping list pad that you find at the dollar store!) ~ Paint pen
1.) Paint the inside cardboard of the frame with chalkboard paint (or whatever color your heart desires!)
2.) Measure down to the very middle of your painted cardboard and make a mark on either side.
3.) Using a book or ruler, draw a line straight across the middle of the painted chalkboard with your paint pen.
4.) Allow to dry:)
5.) On the top side of the painted cardboard, just above the line, write "Clean" with your paint pen.
6.) Once dry, flip the cardboard over and write "Dirty" on the other side of the line.
7.) Attach your adhesive magnet to the back side.
And there you go, now to train the family to flip the magnet whenever they start to unload the dishwasher....
