In case any of you have ever wished that the Apple Sticky Notes desktop app could magically transform into a real-life disposable desktop note taking system, your wish has been granted!

I’ve teamed up with Scotch® Duct Tape to bring you a clever way to transform any plain desk into a note-takers paradise with this DIY chalkboard desk using their new removable chalkboard tape.

Even better, you literally only need two supplies and our step by step instructions to make this DIY chalkboard desk.

Nope, there’s no spray paint or dealing with coats of chalkboard paint to make!

And you can personalize it into whatever shapes you’d like: hearts, polka dots, letters, you name it!

Oh, and the kids will have something to color on that isn’t the walls…

Materials Needed To Make The Geometric DIY Chalkboard Desk

How To Make The DIY Chalkboard Desk

First, cut similar lengths of the chalkboard tape to suit the size shapes you’ll be making.

Hold the two pieces together and cut them into a triangle (or your choice of) shape. You can also use a tiny piece of tape on the back to hold the two pieces together if it makes it easier for you to cut, totally up to you!

Next, peel the backing from the tape and place onto a clean desktop surface and press firmly.

Repeat this process until you’ve filled the space you’d like covered. You can also vary the sizes of the shapes to avoid needing to widen the tape with two pieces, too.

    • This tape actually removes really easily when I was rearranging the triangles to decide where to place them, but I have a high gloss desktop so I’m sure that helps :)

    • Really?! Mine wiped right off even without water! I think the chalkboard tape is a little more chalkboard marker friendly than a regular chalkboard :)
