Over the holidays I saw drinking glasses at Pier 1 with a chalkboard square on them so people could put their names on their glasses. I was going to make some on my own, but this idea came about before I got to it. I was thinking of getting some glass containers for leftovers and getting rid of my tons of plastic containers and all the different lids that go with them. So I thought why not put a space on the glass containers to label what was inside and also date them. (We are always wondering if the leftovers in the fridge are still good).
My husband suggested I scuff up the glass with sandpaper since I wasn't sure if the chalkboard spray would hold. The spray I got also suggested the same thing with 220 grit sandpaper so I did scuff the area first.
Since doing these I've seen that red chalkboard paint is now available, which I think would have looked great on these. Plus my kitchen is decked out in cherries. Oh well, just another excuse for more crafting!
