Did you paint the wall with the hanging objects with a magnetic paint?

Do you mind sharing the brand of magnetic paint and how many coats? I have heard it isn't effective, but looks like you made it work!

Most brands of paint have magnetic paint. Go to your local paint store.

This is my customers home, which I designed & installed the Home office, and she purchased the lights, so I don't know where she got them. Sorry

This is exactly what I want to do with my office. I have the same layout, but my windows are lower, at about 24" off floor. Do you think I could still put a freestanding desk in front of them?

Marie--is the wall just painted and the client just "sticks" pins into it. it looks fabulous and i'm trying to come up with a pin board wall in a similar situation: a built in desk with a wall in front of it.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Kit Pollard added this to Grown Up Collages
An office is an ideal place for a wall collage, of course - where else would you rather be inspired?
Janell Beals - House of Fifty Mag added this to Twelve Creative Ways To Decorate With Message Boards
If I could pick one room featured in this Ideabook for my home, this would be it. What an outstanding space for a family with children. This space offers ample storage, plenty of seating and lighting along with a view to the outdoors. But the item that makes the space? One very large message board covering an entire wall. It is a perfect spot to hang artwork, school work, notes, invitations and inspirations!
Janell Beals - House of Fifty Mag added this to Make a Place for Children's Art
In a family workspace, a large bulletin board lining an entire wall offers a great place to pin all the artistic endeavors of the family, in addition to any reminders and schedules. The result is a fun collage of colors.
Shoshana Gosselin added this to 19 Double-Duty Living Rooms
Working space. Create an office or homework space. If it's near the front door and you don't have a mud room, you can incorporate a spot for backpacks and even shoe bin.
Cover an entire wall. Need a lot of room for your clippings, postcards, sketches and color strips? Consider making an entire wall a place to pin.
A giant bulletin board keeps desks clutter-free, and holds inspiration, to-do lists, a calendar — even impromptu artwork.
Samantha Schoech added this to A Desk for Every Home Office
Use your wall space. By making an entire wall into a bulletin board, you get to fill your room with ideas, inspiration and sudden strokes of genius. And it actually makes clutter look good.

This photo reminds me that, as a person with ADD, I need the calm on the left and not the visual chaos on the right. I love kids' art, but would need it in a room not meant for concentration. :) Plus, I prefer a framed, gallery wall layout for kid's work, where you switch out a selection of featured artworks, eventually having them choose their own to showcase.
