Oh My Goodness. I am so excited with the way this project is turning out I just had to share it with you, even though I’m not done. Like I have said before I need to see results quickly, and today delivered!!
I am still in the midst of organizing my kitchen – UGH!! I just have trouble deciding what I want to use for storage and organization. I had plenty of ideas pinned on my pinterest board
, but several of them would not work with my non-standard kitchen.
This weekend I purchased some containers at walmart for my dried baking goods. For me and my family plastic works best. I love these containers because of the shape, and the handy handle on one side. I purchased all they had in stock of the 2quart size. – $1.97 ea!!
(They have a larger one that holds a gallon for $2.97, but of course it was too tall for the cabinet it was going in.) The labels peal off super easy if you take a little time. Make sure that you have them completely dried out before you put anything in them. The containers are great and all but my favorite part is the labels!!
I have seen many different applications of chalkboard type labels and I love the look. When I saw this at Hobby Lobby a little while back and knew it was the perfect option. Lucky for me it was on sale this last week! Then I used my 40% off coupon to purchase a really large circle punch – 3 1/2″ on loveliness.
Then, using the lovely punch I cut circles from the chalkboard vinyl. If you haven’t worked with this type of vinyl, it’s just like contact paper, with a peel and stick backing.
Easy peasy!! Place your label where you like it and voila!!
I have these wonderful chalkboard markers that I love because they don’t wipe off like chalk, but are easily erased with a damp cloth. Perfect for labeling things that are going to be handled often.
Love!! Love!! Love!! the look!! Notice I turned the one in the back sideways so I could see the label easily. The only drawback is that I cannot get a 5lb bag of flour in this container, but that’s okay with me, I will store the extra in the freezer to keep it fresh. There is quite a bit of this vinyl on the roll and I can’t wait to go label crazy in the rest of the kitchen and many other places in the house!! Wahoo!!
