The school countdown is on which means that everyone is going to be in full DIY mode to get their dorm rooms ready before class begins. You’ve probably got a long list of DIYs that you want to get done to personalize your dorm room. It’s probable that you might not have time for all of them, but I’d like to suggest one you should definitely do: a magnet board.
A magnet board is the less intimidating version of a bulletin board. You don’t need to worry about fiddly, sharp pins. You just need a magnetic surface with some good magnets. DIYing that is actually very easy to do. Whether you want something classic or something more unexpected, there’s an easy DIY magnet board for you. The good thing is that many of them can be completed in one afternoon so you’ll have something cool for your dorm without wasting a lot of time constructing it.
