I saw a friend had taken chalk paint and made her own, and I thought. I can do that.
What you’ll need:
- Chalkboard Paint
- Small detail paint brush
- Chalkboard Markers
- Frog Tape
I bought some plain spice containers from Bed Bath and Beyond, baby formula bottles and quart and pint jars as well (depending on how much I have of a spice). I bought some Rustoleum Chalkboard paint and
Tape the container to make a rectangle ‘template’
Paint the exposed area between the tape. I did 3 coats until I couldn’t see through the paint. Allow the paint to dry thoroughly between applications.
I wrote the names of the spices in the containers after putting the spice in, that way I was sure it would fit in the container.
The Chalkboard marker does wash off, so don’t get it wet (there is a permanent version as well, so choose what will work for you.
My spice container is from Bed Bath and Beyond as well.
This project was pretty quick and easy. The hardest part is getting jars for some for some of the spices that I have more than 1/2 cup of as I don’t want to use my canning jars, so I’m using spaghetti jars as I use them up.
