Chalkboard Tags (A Tutorial)

I recently reorganized my pantry and made little wood chalkboard tags to keep everything in the right place. I found these distressed crates at The Alley a local import shop:



And I bought these value packs of wooden 3″ circles:



I was able to drill a hole through a pile of the tags all at once:

Once I sanded and smoothed the holes, I sprayed each tag with chalkboard paint:



Once they were dry I added a small ball and chain clasp:


I wrote on each tag with chalk:



And put everything in its place:



This post is part of my new series Getting Organized:

    Wow, so organized!

    I love the little bins so things don’t get lost in the pantry. Who knew a pantry could be pretty.

    I’ve been cleaning my pantry this week, and there’s plenty of things that expired last year. Who knew I had Bisquick that apparently is a useful cooking staple?

    I wish my pantry was that large. Mine is much narrower, but somewhat deeper, so I always have a hard time finding things in it.

    Oo! Big, pretty pantry… I love how organized it is. This totally shows mine up. :)

    I love the baskets with change-able text and how sorted and easy to find everything is.
