Monday Made It

This week I'm linking up with 4th Grade Frolics for Monday Made It. Check out what I've been up to!

How many of you have one of these bad boys in your classroom? I'm sure we all have one of these in some size in our class. I hate that it's white and looks boring. I wanted to give it some pizzazz so I spray painted it! It's so easy to do I just had to share!


Step 1: Empty out the drawers and if it's on wheels, tape them up so they stay black. 


Step 2: Take it outside on place it on something so it doesn't stay on your driveway forever...like my project last year....


Step 4: Let it dry, and paint more coats as needed.

Step 5: Sand it down if it's bumpy.

Step 6: Be super proud of your work!


Make sure the spray paint you use has primer in it, or that it is made for plastic. This will make sure it does not peel or scratch!

There's also still time to enter my giveaway! Check it out here and enter below!

  3. I was wondering when I was cleaning up my room last month if they could be painted! I have very little storage in my room, so I have about 10 of them, all white. I am totally going to do this. It will make a world of difference in my room. Thanks for sharing!

  7. I love that idea! I have a bunch of supply boxes with white tops that are starting to look a little rough. I might spray paint the lids instead of buying new ones. Thank you for the inspiration!

  9. Great idea. I have a few of those carts that don't match my colors anymore....I need to paint them but right now they are buried deep in one of my closets at school:/ Have to wait until I can get in there and grab them:) Thanks for linking up:)
