That is a real neat idea. I just put a couple of cork panels on the end of an upper cabinet in our kitchen.

Everything about this project is worth repeating.
I’ve heard of the magnetic paint but have never used it. Mainly because I thought it would be too weak. Apparently not.
You have thought of everything, from cubbies for the supplies to mags to hang take with you notes..
Great idea Ivan

This turned out really nicely, Ivan! Great use of cut offs. The puzzle frame is creative. The cubbies will corral the chalk and other items way better than a little tray on the bottom. Did you stack cut the puzzle ends? Thanks for sharing.
