How to Make a Peel and Stick Chalkboard Surface on Anything!
I had these old canisters that I thought about throwing away, but after throwing in the dishwasher, they started to sparkle again. I thought about how I could spruce them up. I had been playing with chalkboard paint at the time, making ones out of old cabinet doors. I wondered how I could put a chalkboard surface on my old canisters, so I decided to experiment with Contact Paper.
First, I cut out a large square of the paper. Then, I sprayed the chalkboard paint evenly over it. After drying, I was able to make several chalkboard labels I could peel and stick on lots of things! They worked great to write on and wipe off with a damp cloth. And, the were much cheaper than buying the canisters I saw in Pier 1 with chalkboard labels on them, and more fun making them myself.
