I've looked into magnetic paint but I want to put photos up on the wall held up by magnets and it doesn't sound like it is suitable for that. Any idea where I can get a large, thin sheet of metal I could screw to the wall and stick stuff on with magnets? Thanks.
I'll have a look there but I think they may be a bit bulky, I really want something very thin so it lies very close to the wall, that's why I like the idea of the paint <fussy> this sort of thing but much bigger!
I think that IKEA one is about a centimetre deep, assuming it's the one I've got in my kitchen it's not just a flat sheet. Do you have an old-fashioned hardware store you could ask? They might be able to get something very flat and put holes in for fixing it.
Look in your Yellow Pages under metal or steel or something like that - there may be a small company locally that would sell you an offcut. I got my stainless steel cooker spashback very cheaply in this way.
