Elegance Spice Tins on a Magnetic Wall
Michele, one of our featured cooks, created a wall mount spice rack and now uses her spices as colorful art on her kitchen wall.  First, she treated her kitchen wall with Rustoleum's Magnetic Primer (a bit of a misnomer).  This product is full of metal pieces which attract magnets.  She then covered the magnetic primer with two coats of her wall paint.  She cut the magnetic strip that came with her Versa-Tin square tins and created a beautiful border of color in her black and white 1921 bungalow.

To create a magnetically attractive wall mounted spice rack, using Rustoleum's Magnetic Primer, coat your wall with 3-5 coats of the primer.  Cover it with your wall paint.  Cut the magnetic strip that comes with your tins (or choose Precut Magnetic Rounds) for the bottom of the tins.   Arrange your spice tins your new wall mount spice rack--the wall!

Karla was our first featured Custom Magnetic Spice Rack Cook in our monthly newsletter and on our home page.  She is a culinary student in Toronto.  Karla started her wall mounted spice rack by purchasing a sheet of Stainless Steel at a local DIY store.  She adhered the magnetic strip to the bottom of each of her Square Tins.  She tells us that her wall mounted spice rack is the envy of her fellow culinary students.  

Like Karla's idea?  But want an easy solution for your wall mounted spice rack?  Purchase a

Not all Stainless Steel is Magnetic!

Stainless steel is the universal name for a number of different steels used primarily for their anti-corrosive element.  When it comes to classifying stainless steel as having magneticmagneticmagnetic properties, there is not a simple yes and no answer.

It is important to understand that stainless steel is not a pure magnetic metal. In fact, stainless steel is really a collective name for a steel alloy that is mixed with other metals in order to give it the properties that make the metal compound so desirable.  For instance, the typical stainless steel contains just over ten percent of chromium.  Other metals may be introduced into the steel compound as well as the chromium. One of these metals is nickel.  Essentially, the addition of nickel to the stainless steel compound helps to strengthen the protective qualities of the chromium.  Generally referred to as a 300 series, stainless steel that contains nickel is not magnetic at all.  The reason is that the presence of the nickel alters the physical structure of the stainless steel and removes or inhibits any magnetic qualities.  Stainless steel refrigerators are not magnetically attractive.

However, magnetic stainless steel does exist.  The 400 series, which contains steel and chromium, but without the presence of nickel, does have magnetic qualities. The degree of magnetic attraction may vary.  Because the Grade (300, 400, etc. ) may not be displayed at your DIY store, it is recommended to take a magnet or one of your tins with the magnetic material on the bottom with you to test for magnetic attraction.

Toni created her wall mounted spice rack with framed magnetic sheet. Magnetic Sheet offers a sleek, smooth looking alternative to magnetic strip.  That's what Toni was looking for when she made her purchase of 4 oz. and 8 oz. Bravada Squares.  Her husband, Eddie, had built Toni a farm table and framed up a length of our magnetic sheet with the same wood.

Our magnetic sheet has the same paper-backed adhesive on one side as our magnetic strip and precut rounds.  You can apply the magnetic sheet to any smooth, non-porous surface, including the inside or outside of cabinets.
