DIY Or DI-WHY?: Chalk Board Labels
Don’t think I’ve begun to devalue your opinion just because I haven’t requested it in a few several posts (not since this post on repurposed containers to be exact). Quite to the contrary, I hold it in the highest regard– as high as you can, anyway, for the preferences and thoughts of near strangers. I kid, I kid, we’re all friends here.
Today’s topic: chalk labels. I will go on the record here as saying that I do actively hold this method of identification is aesthetically pleasing in theory, one might even go so far as to call the look “cute.” However, one can’t help but to wonder whether the system is as successful in reality (see: possibility for smudging, leading to illegibility, chalky fingers, et al.).
Other factors to consider: the insatiable appeal of zero commitment. No chalk strokes attached and such. Scribe and erase at your will.
There you have it. You’ve been briefed on the facts of the case and other legal jargon I don’t know how to use cause I’m an organizer not a lawyer, silly.
So, what say you? Chalk labels– you down? Ready to coat your fingers in the pigmented white dust-stuff and practice your best blackboard cursive on miniature spice labels? Or are you siding with “skip it,” and playing it safe with some bog standard white labels and a wide array of colored sharpies? Pray tell, what are your thoughts I need to know!
P.S. The blog must go on, but it goes without saying that we are all thinking of those affected by that cruel wench Sandy. Be safe, be safe, be safe.Image credits: Unsophisticook, Anthropologie, Wit and Whistle, Think Garnish, A Cup of Jo, CB2, HomeLife, Virtue For Women
