VBS is over and it was beyond AMAZING!!! But now that I don't have my mind racing in a million directions, I can focus on doing stuff for school... including crafting. So I am finally going to contribute to Tara's Made it Mondays! I know it's Friday.... but I am going to join on Monday. You can check out more of her great ideas and other crafters linking up here
Well Leslie, what did you make??
I made this awesome toolbox!
I have been dying to make this thing since last summer when I saw Rebecca's Toolbox. Here is a picture of hers.
You can read about her Tool Box on her wonderful blog
So how did I make mine??? First head to Lowe's or click on the Amazon link (if you can wait a few days) and buy yourself this little beauty. My friend and I had a mini- pinterest party and each made one. Love Pinterst Parties!!! Gotta get one going for Back 2 School.
Focus....... I didn't like the blue color, so that meant SPRAY PAINT.... Take out all the little drawers. Then go outside, prime it and paint it.
|All the little drawers|
|Ready for Paint|
|YES!!! Don't forget the Primer|
|Lots of Primer.... should have put more on mine|
|A glossy white spray paint is added|
Now while your box is drying, go visit Rebecca's site Create Share Inspire and print out 2 copies of the labels that she made onto 2 different colors of card stock. She has a link on her site. Now if you're like me, you might not use all her labels.... like chalk or rings, but you can always double up on one you use a lot of. For me... that was Paper Clips.... I live off paper clips... they are always in my pockets and my husband goes nuts finding them in the washer or dryer. Oh well.... you never know when you need a paper clip. A-D-D...... Focus...... labels...... Cut the labels out.
|Look at the nice fan formation Kim made. She laughed the whole time I took pictures of EVERYTHING!|
|My box. I told you..... you cant see that tape.... right??? No....|
The final finishing touch was adding our names to the top of the boxes.
