Rewritable Labels for Glasses and Boxes

I never knew for how long I have to cook this or that pasta because I store my pasta in glasses and of course couldn't remember what it said on the original packing. I thought about a way to note the cooking time somewhere and voilà! Functional and looking good :)

All you need is:

  • blackboard paint

  • a brush

  • chalk

Please follow the instructions coming with the blackboard paint you use. As for mine, I needed to paint the (dry and clean) surface two times, allowing the paint 24h to dry after each turn. If you can easily scrape off the paint with your fingernail, add another layer.

Have fun :)

P.S.: It doesn’t say anything about dishwashers, but I’d rather clean the glasses by hand. Experiences, anyone?
