Well I know your all DYING to know what I did with those scrabble magnets and where they are....so......here it is, all complete in its full glory....
I had better tell you the whole story....Lets go back to the beginning!
I had this "brainwave" and I new I need a few things from a neighbor to help me out....so a seek and find mission was in order! I ventured into a world I never really go..... The scrap metal yard!!! Well there it was rusty, neglected and screaming at me to take it home!!
Once the selection was made I hear "Muz" (my neighbor) say "Hey Leonie, I can cut it out in any shape you like!!" Oh...what golden words they were!! After a cup-pa and much consideration with his Mrs "Gage" it was unanimous, a circle was in order.
Upon returning home I set to work on the next stages of the plan. I had been given expert advice on what my options were and how I could achieve my goal. Dave started to get a little excited and fished out this "super duper antique power tool" from the depths of the shed and set me to work.
Have a look see at what it does! It took the surface rust off and left me with this gorgeous black effect. I new....I was on a winner when I saw this ugly duckling start to reveal its true colors!!
THEN....the surprise ingredient was added. A wax candle!! I had clear instructions to heat up the plate and lightly rub a candle over the surface then rub it in with an old rag. This seals the steel and gives it a polished effect. I never new steel was porous!! I guess it goes without saying, that you learn something new every day!!!
That all said....Magnetic Scrabble board is now complete....OH....but there is one condition.....YOU NEED TO PEE TO PLAY!!!
