We recently repainted Jill’s bedroom. What made this interesting is we used magnetic paint on some of the walls.
After reading reviews I decided to put 4 coats of the magnetic paint on the walls to ensure magnets would stick to the walls. All the write-ups indicated the more coats of paint, the better magnets would stick to the wall. People who used only 1 or 2 coats were not happy with the results. Those who used 4 to 5 coats all said the results were satisfactory.
We then covered over the magnetic paint with the top coat color.
The overall effect is pretty cool. Ordinary kitchen magnets stick with enough force to hold a couple of sheets of paper.
