Pantry doors provide an opportune place to apply chalkboard paint. Decide if you would like the chalkboard paint on the outside, or the inside of the pantry doors.

When making the decision of where to apply your chalkboard paint to your pantry doors, take into consideration if you want your information kept private or public.
