Kitchen Blackboard Paint Before Facebook

I have some really cool built ins in my kitchen courtesy of my super talented brother in law Andy.

When we first remodeled our kitchen I wanted an organized space for mail, receipts, school paperwork, etc. But then each cubby was getting filled with a bunch of random things and there was no organization in sight. So, since washi tape and I are in a longterm love affair I just used some washi tape to assign each cubby a role. But, that wasn’t the cutest so I wanted to think of another way to label each one. The hard part was I sometimes change the cubbies around so it couldn’t be anything permanent. That’s when my old pal blackboard paint popped into my head!
