Ready to make some chalkboard canisters? I got inspired by some fancy black tins on the Pottery Barn website but decided that I could make them for so much cheaper. The secret? Tins from the thrift store! They are inexpensive and the perfect thing for this DIY project. So, make these chalkboard tins for every room in your home to organize all the things.

Supplies needed to make these DIY chalkboard canisters:
- Tins of any size and type
- metal primer
- chalkboard paint
- Masking tape
- Plastic wrap

Great idea! Well done!
Love this idea! Can’t wait to see how you used. 🙂
Angie these are incredible!!!! Congratulations on the feature!!
Thanks for posting this. I just posted yours! I think it will go over very well!!!
Great job! I will have to look for the metal primer, I have some tins and chalkboard paint already! Thanks so much for sharing!
LOVE these! I am definitely trying this as I have a ton of these tins!
Hey Angie! These are the best! I have been hanging on to some tins, not wanting to throw them out, but not knowing what to do with them, either! I’m so doing this. I’m just missing the metal primer. (P.S.) I’m having my 1st linky party tomorrow and the theme is baskets. Pls. consider linking up if you have any posts w/baskets!
Hi Angie. Stopping by from Someday Crafts & I am sooo excited. I have tons of these. Not really sure why, but chalkboard is perfect – for my crafts, Grandson’s, Hubby’s fishing stuff. I could go on & on. Thanks so much!
Oh my gosh, I love those! You have my wheels turning. Thank you for the inspiration,
I am recreating the vignette from PB that includes these tins… got everything from the dollar store (but I couldn’t find any tins)
LOVE THIS! Thanks for sharing! I linked your project to my recent post all about CHALKBOARD PAINTS! Go check it out!

What a darling idea! Never would’ve thought about covering canisters with that ever-lovin’ chalk paint! 🙂 Great job!
