I drink a lot of tea. So much that we call the shelf of tea boxes in our pantry the Tea Department. And it was out of control and not very pretty until I found a really inexpensive solution:
They were some super cute little cardboard bins at Target. (For only $1 each!)
After I purchased as many as I could carry, I remembered a project I have really been wanting to try: chalkboard labels. I painted contact paper with the chalkboard paint. (Mine turned out bumpy because I didn’t use spray paint and I applied it with a cheap brush and, of course, was too impatient to find one of my better brushes and start over.) I cut out the cute little shape with a paper punch from the craft store.

Because they are made from contact paper, they should remove easily if I ever want to do that.
A bonus for me is that I had an extra label when I was done and it is the perfect size for a dollhouse chalkboard, which just so happens to look very much like the chalkboard I have in my real kitchen!
Yesterday, when I was at Michael’s, I saw that they actually sell chalkboard contact paper, and it’s only $5 a roll, which happens to be the same price as plain contact paper, plus you don’t have to buy the paint and do all the work. You can also get it online here (affiliate link).
