Today's Project

I've been dying to finish my pantry re-do. I've had an idea for labeling all my fabulous containers and I finally figured out how to execute the idea I had in my head. So today's project was labeling. I would still like to paint all the shelves but that will have to wait for a day when the temperature in my house is below 90 degrees!





I was thinking about painting some chalkboard paint right on the containers but it just seemed messy and way to much work for this lazy girl. I have been trying to find stick on chalkboard but couldn't. Then today I saw online that someone had used vinyl. I got all excited and rushed out to the craft store. So all you need for these fantastic labels is a roll of vinyl, I chose the Cricut brand. Then I really had to hunt for the Chalk Ink that I've been hearing all about. After 3 stores I finally found it at Micheals...and DUDE, I freaking love this stuff!
