ChalkBoard Labels

Have you seen chalkboard labels?
You probably have, but they were new to me when I found them at World Market.
On a paper sheet, sold in sets of 6 for 3.99.
They are reusable and wipe clean with a damp cloth.
Perfect for jars, drawers, boxes, papers
and almost any surface you need a little note
for organization!
The directions say they can be repositioned too,
although I have not tried that yet.
Also, they come with a piece of white chalk.
Anyway, I thought they would be perfect for a few projects I have going.
One being the laundry room, where I am about to finish painting the cabinets a lighter color of ivory white,
 like the vintage piece
I shared a few days ago.
But for now all my inspiration is coming together and I placed four
wire baskets above the washer and dryer on a shelf.
Problem is, you can't see what is inside, so I added the labels
using a tag and clothes pin to attach to each basket.

These cabinets above are those to be painted.
Next to the dryer, is the vintage piece I shared in another post
and the sink at the other end
 was put in by my hubby
with storage below.
So handy everyday.
As you can see, I have started painting some pieces already.
And this is the other side of the room across from
the washer and dryer.
There is a wall ironing board pull down,
small fridge, corner cabinet
and the tall cabinet is
a laundry shoot from the second floor.
So I have my work cut out for me to finish this space.
On the other end of the laundry is a sewing area with counter top, shelves and window,
which I will share later.
But for now, I have been having some fun with these labels.
I do plan to make labels on thin wood pieces
using chalkboard paint.
But until I get the wood cut, these labels have been a great start.
Here I added them to another project for a wall of organizational drawers in my studio.
I'll share that soon too.
Hope you're having a great week.
Happy April
Happy Creating!
