Did you ever have to write something down while looking in your pantry? Do you have a place to write your weekly meals? Do you have a place to write your needed groceries? Here is a DIY Chalkboard Pantry Doors project anyone can do.
First, you need to purchase Con-Tact Chalkboard Contact paper. Here are the links from Amazon (affiliate). Chalk works great but can be a little messy if you use it often. If you don’t like chalk, you can buy Liquid Chalk marker which will dry and can remove with a wet paper towel.
Now that you have all the supplies you need. You can begin. Measure the distance between the inlays of the pantry cabinet doors. Add a 1/4 of an inch or 2 cm to each side of the measurements. Cut the Con-Tact Chalkboard Contact paper to size and adhere it to the inlays for all four door panels. I added it to all of my pantry doors.
While applying the Con-Tact chalkboard paper, use the edge of a credit card to smooth out the bubbles. Run the credit card in different directions from the center of the paper to the outside as you go.
Now, where to place the marker or chalk? I found these great Command Medium Caddy. It’s clear and not very deep so it allows the doors to close. I added one on each side. Don’t they look cute?
Here is the other door. I added the Con-Tact chalkboard on the top and the bottom of the cabinet door on this side as well.
I added days of the week to the left side pantry doors and the right side has my grocery list on it. If you don’t have a pantry, you can also add chalkboard paper to the inside of the other cabinet doors. It can be used in a cabinet next to your phone or on a wall in your office.
Another option: You can also use markerboard self-stick paper to do the same thing if you want to use dry erase markers instead. Check out the links below from Amazon (affiliate) that has some options.
I hope this inspires you to utilize your pantry doors. Do you use the back of your cabinet doors for anything? Please share below.
