Monday Made It!

I am happy to participate this week (on Tuesday, haha)!!! I've been working on my teacher toolbox for like, 3 weeks now and FINALLY finished it! :) I'm into rainbows and fun colors, as you can see by my choice of spray paint. I didn't realize it would be that HOT orange, but I looooove it!!! It's SO me! And it will match my Chicka Chicka Boom Boom classroom!

What do ya think?!

*Since some of you asked--I (well...my husband, haha...) spray painted it with plastic primer first, then orange, and then a clear, glossy spray paint. And I'm pretty sure he only did one coat of each??*


  1. That's great! So colorful and organized. How did you find such perfectly sized containers?

  4. I love that you used different fonts on your drawers..... very creative!!

  5. Love it! I just made mine, but did not paint it. Did you prime or sand it or anything first or just spray paint it?

  6. I would love to know about your spray paint too. Did you just spray or prime it first? So cute!

  7. I love your toolbox! I made one last week!

  8. Thanks, everyone!!! To answer your questions, the organizer came from Lowe's. I want to say it was like, $20 or less, but I don't remember... :) My husband used a primer spray paint first, then orange, and then a clear, glossy spray paint. I wasn't going to fool with painting it at first but am glad I decided to! I love how it turned out!

  9. I like it! Totally doing it to mine when I get back to school!

  10. Your tool box looks GREAT! I'm going to have to make my own.

  13. Awesome Idea! I love the way you painted yours. I just finished mine as far as putting on the labels and now I just need to paint it. I am new to blogging and your newest follower. :)

  14. What did you use to make the fun/cute labels for your awesome toolbox? I LOVE it!

    1. I typed the names of the drawers and printed them on white paper. I then cut scrapbook paper to fit in the drawer and glued the names to the scrapbook paper!
