Known to be a staple in every home, chalkboard paint can be used to revamp a lot of different things. From mason jar labels to fridge doors, a few coats of it take only a couple of minutes to apply but once you're done, the pieces will have an aesthetic value that'll last for years. If you're looking for ways on how to maximize this multipurpose must-have, we've rounded up four beautiful and functional ideas that you can consider:

Breathe new life into a chest of drawers by painting it with a coat or two of chalkboard paint. When it's dry, write labels that correspond to the contents of each drawer. Feel free to use it for fresh produce, dinnerware, and you can have a separate piece to hold some of your kids' belongings, too.

Let your significant other, sibling, or whoever you share the sleeping space with wake up to a sweet message scribbled on the headboard. You can also use it to write reminders, important tasks, and ideas you don't want to forget! 

Always forgetting which seeds you're growing in certain pots? Cover your planters in chalkboard paint and label away. Keep it quirky and interesting by scribbling in different fonts and styles!

Whether you're a budding baker or a pro, a cheat sheet for measuring and conversion equivalents can always come in handy. Consider converting the inside of one of your cabinet doors into a makeshift guide. You can even add hooks and rods to hold your measuring spoons!
