Little magnet strips or discs are not only powerful and fun to play with from time to time, they’re also great for creating vertical storage space or keeping track of tiny, metallic objects. From rings to pins, to screws, there’s a lot of useful hacks you can use magnets for, which you might want to keep in mind while you’re shopping for magnets in Brisbane, just remember to keep the smaller stuff away from kids; Choking Hazard.
Keeping pins in check.
Pins and needles getting lost is not something you want, because they’re pointy dangers when you can’t keep track of them. If you need to stop it, but don’t have needle holders, a strong magnet on the bottom of a dish can work wonders; you can even turn the pin dish over without losing the pins and needles. Just leave all the pins and needles on the dish while you’re busy on your DIY project. Thin dish and strong magnets work well for this little trick, so testing out what you’ve got is a good idea.
Adding removable designs.
A more aesthetic than a practical one, this little trick lets you attach decor to your metallic objects and fixtures, like lampshades or refrigerator doors. This one’s particularly useful for the former, as you’d usually have to resort of gluing it to them or poking holes, which means you’ll need to replace it should you grow tired of the design (not saying you will). For the latter, you can add some needed visual flair to metal furnishings with magnet on decorative items.
Turn vintage tins into storage space.
When it comes to the home space, organization is king. Attaching magnets to your vintage tins and slapping them into a magnetic bar or metallic furniture, you can turn the decorative pieces into functional storage space for smaller objects, like pencils. They’re multipurpose as they add visual flair and give you extra storage space; fashion and function.
Another hybrid of fashion and function, you can sew in magnets into your cuffs in order to turn them into magnetic fashion statements, one that you can use to keep important metallic objects like pens, needles and screws (for DIYers), and the like on hand at all times. Or is it on wrist? Sorry, couldn’t resist.
