I found these containers for $2 at Ikea and snagged them up. I knew they’d be perfect for all the new foods I’ve been buying for clean eating and I had a hankering to use chalkboard paint on something. Anything. Everything.
(A lot of you have asked about the clean eating stuff and I will blog on it all soon…once I get it all figured out!)
I just did the old “cut off the label and tape it on the front” thing for awhile, before it’s complete ghetto-ness was driving me batty.
I decided to cut a cute shape out of labels and paint on the containers with chalkboard paint. Let’s just pause a second to say, labels were an awful idea. Like, don’t even attempt it. The sticky mess they created was pure torture trying to scrub off. Use a stencil. Or painters tape. Or freehand it. Seriously.
The actual painting process was simple. 2 coats, cure 24 hours, done.
Write on those puppies…
…and voila! Pretty, pretty pantry. Which is begging for the rest of it to be organized.
Now I’m off to cover anything else I can find in my house with chalkboard paint. So much fun!
Such a great idea Molly! I am really looking forward to your clean eating post!

This is such a fabulous idea…I love it!
That's so simple and easy and it looks so clean. I will be doing this, thanks for the idea 🙂
I love chalkboard paint and look for anywhere/everywhere to put it! Great idea!
I've never tried chalk paint before. how durable is it? Like, would it work for the hairs that get a lot of use?
