I started with a blue plastic 3 drawer unit.... seriously, it was blue like the one below.
(Sorry about the glare.)
The paint covered so nicely. I don't mind at all that the drawers are transparent anymore. It was quite a task to paint this bugger, but I'm very happy with how it turned out. Now, just to see if it holds up. I think it will.
Another project I've been working on is something I came across on Pinterest. You've got to check out this ladies blog: Coley's Corner. She blogs about her life as a mom and wife and includes lots of crafty ideas. The post that caught my eye is her crafty caddy. I like how mine turned out, but I think hers looks much more polished. I like her color scheme, too, but I needed to stick with what will match my classroom decor. I will either use this on my desk, at my small group table, or maybe by my group meeting area with dry erase markers, poster markers, name sticks, etc. (I like the last option the best.)
So, here's my caddy:
I loved her simple directions... very helpful for a non-crafty person like me. Check her out: here.
