I've got an ugly metal garage door in my otherwise cute foyer, and I bet you do too. It's a surface begging to be more functional in our homes considering it's the last thing we see when we leave in the morning! But how to do just that?
Elmers ProBond Advanced!
It's the strongest and safest multi-surface adhesive for bonding mixed materials - such as ceramic to drywall, glass to concrete, and even wood to metal, without the foamy residue often left behind by stinky polyurethane glue.
We have a tiny front closet for our family of five. Even though we added a storage unit across from the garage door to house our three boys belongings, my husband and I are always looking for extra places to hang our coats or keys when our hands are full.
I recently found a walnut coat rack to use in the foyer, and it couldn't have been easier to attach it to the metal door using Elmers ProBond Advanced!
First I measured, leveled, and marked where I wanted the wood to go. Then I used a medium grit sandpaper to rough up both the metal door and wood surfaces. Next, I used a microfiber cloth to remove the dust and added Elmers ProBond Advance to the wood. Finally, I pressed the wood rack to the metal and had my son hold it firmly in place while I clamped it to the door with painters tape.
Because I was using a heavy piece of wood, I left it clamped in place for 24 hours in our air conditioned house. When I removed the tape, I was completely amazed at how strong the bond was! So strong in fact, that I won't even need to support it with screws!
Above the coat rack, I even used ProBond to affix this chalkboard for important out-the-door reminders, like taking out the trash. You could also hang cork panels or a burlap covered canvas to hang up those permission slips and reminders!
Elmers ProBond Advanced adhesive saved me time and a mess (like holes in my metal door), and provided me with a translucent paint-able finish! With its 100% weatherproof and performance guarantee, it's the perfect mixed material adhesive for your next project!
