It's 16" long. If I put contact paper on the area, I'm thinking the Weld stuff would work???
I think I have seen pictures where others have done exactly what you are wanting to do, but I don't know how they attached it. I don't think contact paper would help, though, because the contact paper itself doesn't adhere very strongly - easy-on, easy-off, that's the point. It's only meant to hold itself, not something else.
If you don't get a specific response on this thread, there are a couple of things you might try. One is to do a google search on this site for "IKEA kitchen bar" and see if anything comes up. If that doesn't help, you might start a new thread with the specific question about attaching an IKEA magnetic kitchen bar - might be more likely to catch the attention of someone who has done it already.
