8 Cool Things You Can Do with Rocks

Are your paper clips, pushpins, and other metallic objects always in a disarray on your work desk or drawer? To organize them more efficiently and in a visually cool way, paint over medium-sized rocks with magnetic paint and then use its magnetic surface to keep clips and other metallic items in place.

Rocks are pretty boring as they are, but with a little extra paint and other basic hardware supplies, rocks can be transformed into cool photo stands, bookends, paperweights, garden markers, and more.
