My Teacher Toolbox...Completed!

Woo Hoo! I have finally completed my teacher toolbox. I am linking up with 4th Grade Frolicks and her Made It Monday linky party!
After getting a lot of inspiration from Create*Teach*Share I decided to make my own teacher toolbox. I purchased mine at Lowes for $16.99.
Knowing that the navy didn't match my decor, I spray painted it green. **Note to self: Sand before spray painting plastic. I was lazy and didn't. It just took about a week to dry completly.
Then I got out my cricut
and my vinyl
I got busy. I almost left the drawers clear without paper but decided to go get some of this from Hobby Lobby:

And here is my final product. I'm pretty sure I like the paper instead of the clear.


It is kind-of hard to read some of the fonts in the picture, but not in person. I'm the only one who will be using it anyway. :)
Only one mishap:

Yep...that's green paint that hadn't dried stuck to the dining room table! Oops! Luckily we weren't using this table in our new home anyway! Make sure you check out Made It Monday...there are TONS of cute things over there!
I'm also linking this up with Run! Miss Nelson's Got the Camera because I have decided I HAVE to have an Erin Condren planner. She's having a giveaway for a $50 giftcard to Erin Condren and it isn't by coincidence that the planners cost $50! :)

  4. I like the polka dot paper. I'm currently in the process of decorating clip boards and I'm using polka dots on a few of them.
