We are doing a much needed makeover on our guest bathroom. While looking for new formica I ran across some formica samples. I saw them and my mind went right to painting them with chalk board paint. So I took a few that I was interested in to use in the bathroom and when we had made our final decision I decided I would paint them. I created some DIY Chalkboard Tags from Formica Samples
I laid them out and added a few coats of chalkboard paint to both sides.
Below are some examples of how I chose to use my tags. There are many more than the ways I’ve shown.
I took a paint shim and painted it. I then wrote on my tag and added twine and hot glued it onto the shim and stuck it in my pot.
A gift tag- no more flimsy paper gift tags. I can reuse them.
Label and Organize- I took a piece of twine and tied the labeled tag to my baskets.
Another gift tag- Add a piece of ribbon and tie to the neck of a bottle of wine and you have a great gift!
A great usable item I created for FREE!
Have you used anything from a hardware store in an unusual way??
