Chalkboard Labels

Today, my bloggy friend, Sandra, over at This Small House blogged about some awesome labels that she found. They are sticky-backed chalkboard labels. I was thinking about how jealous I was that she found these great stickers because I could really use some of them. Upon commenting on her post, I thought, "I wonder if I could make some of those?" and had a great idea. Or so I thought. So, I gave it a try. Did it work?

I took a sheet of address labels from my computer drawer and gathered up some chalkboard paint that has been sitting in the basement gathering dust.

I painted two layers of chalkboard paint on the labels with a regular brush.

Took a picture of the creature who was keeping me company while the paint dried....

Once dried (maybe an hour later), I wrote in chalk and peeled and...

Stuck! YES.... I did work! Give it a try!

That is an awesome idea. Way to go. I definitely have to try this out. I have been wanting to buy chalkboard paint for a while and have yet to do so. This was a push I needed.

Thanks for the inspiration.

Oh, what a great idea. I have some of the chalkboard paint collecting dust as well, so I'm going to try it!!

So cool! I've used chalkboard paint directly on the container but had trouble getting clean lines...your way is so much better.
