Diary of a Not So Wimpy Teacher: Teacher Toolbox

Teacher Toolbox

Have you seen all the cute teacher toolboxes on Pinterest? I have been drooling over them for quite some time. But, I really didn't NEED one. I had plenty of room for my office supplies with my teacher desk and cabinets. As soon as I found out that I was going to be sharing a classroom next year, I knew I NEEDED the toolbox. Two teachers' worth of supplies and no teacher desk!

I sent the hubby to Home Depot for this toolbox.

I wasn't into the gray. So the hubby spray painted it black!

Then I got to work making labels. This was the most challenging part! Here is what I decided on...

Perfect for my sports themed room!

I attached the labels with scotch tape. Here is the finished product...

A closer look...

I am actually excited to go to school and fill it with supplies!

Would you like a sports teacher toolbox like mine? You can grab my labels for FREE. I even made the file editable so you can add any extra labels you need! Click HERE.

What kind of projects are you working on during summer break?


  1. Love it!!! My class last year was mostly boys they would have preferred a sports theme to my pink, green, and zebra LOL

  2. I must go check out Home Depot. Love,love,love your toolbox!

  3. I just finished mine this week as well! I also painted mine black. It looks so much better than the gray! I'm excited to fill it up and keep it behind my guided reading table!
