How To Create A Chalkboard Baking Cabinet

Do you have a project you’ve wanted to do for a long time and still haven’t completed it? Well, this project has been on my to do list for years. It’s really more of a fun, that would be so cute kind of project. I’m not even sure where I got the inspiration but I have remembered this in my head for many years. This was a very quick and easy project that I decided to finially try on the spur of the moment. Here’s how I created this fun DIY chalkboard project for my spice cabinet.

Before I share the details, I want to mention that my spice organizing project has stayed like this for a year now. It made such a difference once it was organized and so efficient. Here are the details on that project How To Organize A Spice Cabinet

Supplies needed :

  • Black chalk paint
  • 3/4″ moulding cut to the size of your cabinet space width 
  • small hooks
  • chalk pen
  • wood glue
  • paint brush





Step 1

Paint the inside of the cabinet door in the area you want to create the chalkboard.





It took 3 coats to get a good solid finish. Be sure to let each coat completely dry.



Step 2

Cut and paint your trim pieces. It took about 2 coats to get a good finish. Once it’s dry, add a thin bead of glue on the trim and adhere to the door. Measure to see the distance you need  to fit the items you will be hanging.



Step 3

Add the hooks marking with a pencil to space as needed. On mine the hooks actually went into the cabinet slightly to make the trim more stable on the door.



Step 4

Write the information you want on the board. you could do measuring equivalents, food substitution or even a favorite recipe .



That’s all there is to it. Super quick, easy and inexpensive. I love projects like that! 


Happy Decorating
