Video Outtake

A few of you have had questions or have been a little confused about what a magnetic frame is so my husband shot a video of me explaining our Reclaimed Wood Magnetic Frames. After shooting a video of me he wanted to do his own version. You can find my version on the Reclaimed Wood Magnetic Frames listings on this website. But I just had to share his too. Enjoy!😂
