chalkboard paint strikes again

friends, the chalkboard paint made another appearance this weekend.  if you follow my blog or know me remotely well, you know that i have a thing for chalkboard paint (see this post and this post). chalkboard paint is a cute and creative way to organize and decorate. in our apartment, certain individuals have been known to have trouble distinguishing between flour, granulated sugar, and powdered sugar in a row of five unlabeled jars containing baking goods. it's helpful that the jars are always placed in the exact same spot in descending height order on the top of the cabinet. but if i were to ever swap the sugar and flour locations, we may end up with extra pasty scones or granular non-rising pizza dough. so, i decided that our baking jars needed labels. but not real labels because in the same way that i have a thing for chalkboard paint, i have a strong thing against label makers (except in the case of organizing office supplies or filing cabinets, which is boring anyway). so i whipped out my beloved chalkboard paint and gave it a go...

naked jars begging for some adorable labeling.

 don't judge me by that lovely torn sweatshirt sleeve. it was a rainy saturday morning. what's a girl to do?

 okay, the paint kind of looks like electrical tape here, but it's much cuter with the actual chalk writing on it. if i were to go back and do it again, i'd make chalkboard circles rather than blocks. 

actually, the chalkboard blocks kind of remind me of the "censored" screening blocks, as though my naked jars had something to hide.

baking supplies with identities. success! (much better WITH the chalk, right?)

the finished product. chalkboard paint to the rescue...round THREE.
