I have been so busy this summer and have barely had time to link up with the amazing Tara from 4th Grade Frolics for Monday Made it... What's up with that?!
Welp, one of my bests and I got crafty last week, and I finally have something to share :)
I know, I know.. Teacher's Toolboxes have been all the craze forever, but I'm a little behind people. I have been enviously drooling over all of your crafty skills and toolboxes for a year now, and I am happy to say that I've picked my jaw up and put myself to work!
I made not one, but TWO teacher toolboxes! One for my students, and one for me! YAY :)
So here it is and here's what I used!
I will warn you, it took about 2 and a half cans of spray paint to coat both toolboxes. I am very picky about everything being covered evenly, so I may have gone a little bit overboard.. but you do need a lot! The paint took about a hour to dry for each coat, and I did 3 coats total.
Next, I printed out my template, and put my favorite teaching supply to work... my personal laminator! Once they were laminated, I cut them out and got the toolbox drawers ready to assemble!
I used glue dots to attach the labels to the drawers. They hold up nicely, but not too stuck that I can't change out the labels if I ever change my classroom theme!
I made two toolboxes, and so did my good friend! She made hers to match the Turquoise on Dots classroom theme.
Aren't they sooo cute?!?
There you have it!! It really wasn't hard at all. I cannot wait to use it in my room! And guess what? You can have my template for FREE to download and print!! Just click here to get it!
My last Made-It is my new favorite classroom decor pack: Neon Lights!!
It is so much fun and will more than likely be my next classroom theme!
There are 195 pages of classroom decor goodies in this pack! I am giving it away for FREE until I get back from the pool today. That's 3 whole hours of freebie goodness!! WOW! Enjoy :) I hope you love it as much as I do! Click here to download!
I'm off to the pool. Head on over and link up with Tara :)
