Erasable Labels

Get organized -- again and again -- with these chalkboard drawers.

Introduction

The labels can be erased as contents in each drawer change.

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Affix masking tape in square outlines to fronts of drawers or tins; cover each square with latex chalkboard paint.

  2. Step 2

  3. Step 3

    To add a border, place two strips of masking tape parallel to each other on opposite sides of square; paint, let dry, and remove tape. Repeat with two other sides.

    I bought mine at IKEA as well. I am not sure if they still sell them. They are real nicely done.
