I don’t know about you, but I can never remember how ounces are in a cup or teaspoons are in a tablespoon. I need to have a handy dandy cooking conversion chart always at my fingertips when I’m in the kitchen!

Remove all excess vinyl from around the images as well as things like the centers of letters and numbers. Weeding tools make this a bit easier but are optional.
Then use transfer tape to apply over your design. Press down well.
Slowly lift the transfer tape and the design should come with it.
Center on your wood chalkboard and press the vinyl down well. Lift up the transfer tape and your design should stay on your cooking conversion chart.
Repeat for the other kitchen conversion chart.
And just like that…you’re done!
Tips for Easily Hanging Your Cooking Conversion Charts
- Use command hooks to hang them both on the inside of your cabinet door to keep yourself organized in the kitchen. I love using them because I can remove them at a later date, if needed, without damaging my cabinets or walls.
- I also used a few pieces of double-sided tape at the bottom to keep them still when I open and close the doors.
During my recent kitchen remodel, I added a set of these to my kitchen. Wanna see my new kitchen? You can see my full farm kitchen reveal by clicking here.

Love this! And such a great gift idea too!
It is a genius idea and it is a wonderful gift for my mom 🙂
Any chance you could make this with metric measurements as well? (litres)
I would not be able to do that. You can likely find the types of images you’re looking for on other sites like etsy.
