Although gray is one of my favorite colors (in home decor) it's not a color in my classroom. So I decided I would use some bright pink and lime green spray paint to brighten them up a bit.
After I chose my colors I got to work. I'm not the best spray painter but I'm pretty sure my Kindergartens won't even notice!
Next up was label time! I searched for the perfect labels that would match my room but in the end decided to create my own so that they would match all my other decorations. I printed them out on shiny photo paper and cut away!
Once the cutting was over I used double sided tape to adhere them inside the drawers. You really can't see the tape unless you look VERY close. I really love the way the both turned out and can't wait to organize my desk at last!
Now it's pretty obvious what the pink toolbox is going to be used for but the lime green one is a little different. I plan on keeping this one accessible to the students. I will use the bottom large bins for extra/lost crayons. Then the top small bins are labeled A-Z to keep my letter cards for word building! The table drawers will hold that days letters paper clipped together for each student at the table. As the year goes on the table captains will be in charge of clipping the letters together as a morning procedure. I'm really hoping this will help to keep those letters organized!
