I cannot remember if I have raved about the teacher toolboxes which are all over Pinterest but I am sure I have. Well I received my toolbox from Amazon and finally finished it! I am so in love with it and cannot wait until I can get it into my classroom. I am going in tomorrow to start setting up even though we still have 2 weeks off.
So here is what I did to make it...
When I ordered it all they had was grey ones. It took me awhile to decide if this was the one I really wanted but I was stuck on the layout of the drawers so I went ahead and ordered it.
I bought some spray paint that is made for plastics and painted it black. Krylon Fusion For Plastic to be exact.
I then made the labels to match my classroom colors, using a turquoise and lime green zebra print from Sassy Designs. Once the labels were finished I printed them on card stock and put them in each drawer. To make sure they will stay in place I used a wee bit of tape to secure them.
I decided that I wanted it a little more fancy than just the plain black top so I took 3 strips of ribbon and attached them around the outside. Voila ! It is done and ready to use:)
Here is a close up of the draws for you to see. I have created an editable PowerPoint file if you want to get these labels and customize them to your needs. To get the labels for only $1.50 and save yourself some time click here.
Stay tuned for pictures of my completely set up classroom.
