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
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.
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.
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.
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!
