I did a pretty good job of organizing our Christmas ornaments when we put them away this year, but I did end up with a few piles that still needed storage. I found a few photo boxes in the basement and wanted to add labels to them so putting the ornaments away year after year would be an easy job.
These were the boxes I started with. Real cheap $1.00 boxes from one of the major craft stores.
I started taping off a rectangle on the top of the box. I used painters tape.
My boxes had an embossed surface, so I painted on a layer of gesso first to even it out.
I then covered the top with two layers of chalkboard paint.
Once dry, I wrote the description of what was inside on the chalkboard label. If I change my mind and want to change what's inside it's real easy to erase and redo.
I hope you have a crafty weekend!
