Chalkboard Labels

It looks like the chalkboard trend is still going strong. Although it's been very popular for a long time I don't think it's going to stop any time soon. I don't mind it. I'm loving it.

Chalkboard labels are my topic today, aren't they fun!

Really, any basket, box, drawer, you name it, looks way better with a chalkboard label on it.
They are very economical.
If you change the content on your baskets or containers, you simply erase the words and write down your new sign, it can't be any easier than that ;)

Here are some of the projects I've added chalkboard labels, and they sure look way better than without them.

A package of Self-Stick Chalkboard Sheets found at the dollar store was the one that gave the push to get into this trend, and let me tell you... that's one of the best. buys. I've. ever done. The three sheets that came in that package are the ones I've been using for all the projects you're going to see in this post.

These plain baskets were my guinea pig.

Some pieces of wood, paint, and of course chalkboard labels made them look waaay better.

Pair up with some ornaments and a vibrant ribbon, this next chalkboard label gives life to a sad brown basket.

Once again, it makes for a pretty Holiday decoration, this time in my daughter's bedroom.

These glass containers in the kitchen looked kind of boring :/

Chalkboard sheets to the rescue again :)  The outline was done with a silver Sharpie.

Later on they were easily transformed to decorate the kitchen for the Holidays.

My latest project using labels was my pantry.  It is not this messy any more!

Five long labels were also crafted from the same sheets.

My supply is almost gone, only a half sheet is what remains of the three I got.

But I'm happy, because is a dollar that was well spent.

Installing pull-out shelves in my pantry was great, I can find anything inside there, but the labels and the chalkboards are the ones that make me smile every time I open those doors ;)
