I thought I’d pop in and show you the fun I’ve been having in my new kitchen with some re-positionable chalkboard vinyl and a chalk marker. I found a mahussive 2 meter roll of the vinyl on ebay for a fiver which I thought was pretty good, I love the fact that It’s re-positionable and I can easily rip it off anything I place it on and there’s literally no trace of it ever having been there. The only downside was that I originally wanted to use the vinyl on the side of my jars but it kept peeling itself off so it looks like it’s only suitable for flat surfaces but it’s staying on the lids perfectly, it’s a small payoff for the versatility it gives me.
Here’s how my spices, herbs and pulses etc look on my shelves now. I measured the lids of my cookie and kilner jars then cut a mass of circles on my Zing so I have plenty of labels left over for future jars, I placed the vinyl circles on my lids then wrote the contents on there as I filled each jar. The chalk marker is smudge free but wipes off with a wet cloth, clever huh?
I had hardly made a dent in my vinyl so I decided to make a little shopping list blackboard, it literally took 5 minutes to cut and have up in place ready to use. I have added the cut file below if you would like it :)
I placed my chalkboard next to my key hooks so I had somewhere to hold my chalk pen. I tied some thread around my marker then tied the other end onto one of the hooks, my marker sits happily on top of the hooks and the thread prevents the marker from falling onto the floor or getting lost.

So, I still have approx half of my vinyl left so I may be back to show how else I use it, I don’t have any plans just yet but of course I’m open to ideas ;)
