Recently I got some chalkboard paint for a project and have become obsessed with it. I found that making chalkboard labels on all of my random kitchen containers ties them all together instead of looking so, well, random. And I love that the containers are clear because I notice when we are running low on sugar before I go to the store, rather than in the middle of a recipe.
Here's how I did it.
I taped off the label area and covered the sides with paper. On re-purposed containers I made the label bigger to cover all of the sticky residue from the original label that I was too lazy to get all the way off.
I sprayed a few coats of paint (giving each coat time to dry in between). These containers were slick and the paint got a little runny so I kept each coat on the light side.

After waiting a few days for the paint to cure I put my new containers to use!
And did I mention the three snap top tupperwares came as a set for $3 at Aldi? Money well
Do you have an awesome use for chalkboard paint? I'd love to see it!
