Here is the finished product. All I needed to apply the chalkboard contact paper is a exacto knife to make it fit in the panels, a credit card to smooth out the lumps, and chalk to "cure" the chalkboard so that chalk will adhere to it better. To cure the chalkboard, you take the side of a piece of chalk and color the whole chalkboard then erase and your writing will show up better. Easy Peasy! I cut the letters with my Silhouette but those could have easily been written with chalk also.
On the left side I put my menu for the week. This is mainly for me, so I remember what I bought the groceries to make. On the bottom I put one of my favorite quotes "I can do ANYTHING but I can't do EVERYTHING."
On the right side I have my grocery list. I really only needed to do two panels one for the menu and one for my grocery list but when my boys are old enough to
not dump all the cheerios out everytime the pantry is opened draw I will let them use the two bottom chalkboards.
If you have been following my blog for awhile you probably recognize these bins from my pantry at my old house.
I made the labels with the help of my silhouette, some scrapbook paper and ribbon.
