{Monday Made It} Teacher Toolbox

So, this teacher toolbox has been all over Pinterest for the past year or so. While, I loved the idea from the moment I saw it, I was not compelled to make one because it looked too tedious. That is the furthest fromt the truth. This project took me about 20 minutes and $20 and I'm so glad I did it!

I bought the Stack-On 22-Compartment Storage Cabinet from Home Depot. I'm not going to post directions because you can find them multiple places. I used the directions provided by Leslie @ Jack of all Trades and printed my labels from a free template provided by Elizabeth @ Fun in Room 4B. I used scrapbook paper that I already had at the house and inspired by my current classroom crush from Melanie @ Inspired In Style.

I debated on painting the frame of the toolbox and I'm glad I did! Here's the final product!

As I'm cleaning out and packing up, I've been dropping things in the appropriate drawer of my toolbox and it makes me even more excited about this project.


  1. This looks terrific. I have rolling cart with drawers but it tends to have all sorts of junk in each one, try as I might to keep it organized. This inspires me to give it a try. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thanks so much for stopping by and taking the time to comment, Cindy! That's kind of how my desk was...stuff was everywhere and I could never find what I was looking for. This project was super easy. Hope you make one for yourself! I think I'm going to love it!
