I have one of those simple wire spice racks from Bed, Bath, and Beyond that come with the stickers to write on. I’ve had it for a long time and the stickers were getting kind of gross, you could almost tell what I’d been cooking.
The solution – chalkboard paint! Matt helped me sand down all of the covers, then I taped them up and gave them two coats of paint. Apparently it’s important to let the paint cure and then prime it. So I patiently waited an entire week to write on them. I primed them by rubbing chalk all over and erasing it.
A chalk pen helped me neatly write all of my yummy spices and now I have a great handmade item in my kitchen! Does your spice rack need a face lift? This was so easy.
And my new obsession had not only updated my kitchen, but gave me new ideas to start creating. I just added chalkboard wineglass and beer bottle tags to my shop.
And Matt might start a tap handle production! A chalkboard tap handle would be perfect for our homemade beer we have on tap. I can’t wait until he finishes one!
