Teachers have so much going on day-to-day in the classroom and we are always in need of good organizational systems to keep everything running smoothly. After seeing a post by Tara from 4th Grade Frolics where she gave a toolbox a makeover, I decided I was in desperate need of a similar organization system!
So, off to Home Depot I went to pick out an organizer!
I knew I wanted to spray paint it white, so I got this grey one because I figured it would be easier to cover up than the navy blue one (which was the only other choice)!
I sprayed it with a plastic primer first, and then a couple coats of white spray paint.
While the paint was drying I cut out scrapbook paper and printed the labels, which were made by Rebecca at Create, Teach, Share. She is the original inspiration behind the toolbox makeover! I attached the labels to the scrapbook paper with a removable adhesive and then I put the paper into the drawers, which I attached with a small piece of tape on the top and bottom. After the paint was dry (well, pretty dry) I brought it inside and put in the drawers!
Not only is this the perfect organizational system for all those small items I need throughout the day, but it also brightens up the counter behind my desk!
