Chalk it Up

Chalkboard paint is all the rage cuz' it's fun, practical, and gives you a chance to write on things without committing.  Here is a simple project that you can finish in a day (actually a lot sooner than that, you just have to factor in drying time).

 Because I love lists and post-it notes but hate clutter, I decided to paint the inside of of my spice cabinet so it conceals all the lists and notes I want! 

Cabinet Before

I applied two coats of paint to the inside of my cabinet...
let dry...
rubbed chalk on it to condition it...

And chalked it up!

Did you know that to convert fresh herbs to dry in recipes, you just have to switch from Tablespoons to teaspoons?

 Now you do :)

great idea doing it on the inside of the cabinet! i am definitely a minimalist, but love creative unique ideas like chalkboard paint- getting to have the chalkboard but keep the kitchen as-is is really appealing to me.

you're full of great ideas, i get excited seeing when you post!
