DIY Desktop Organization Toolbox!

I cannot believe summer is already coming to an end. Even though I am not "going back to school" and starting fresh, I use this time to refresh my organization techniques and revamp my style! For quite a while now I have seen teacher toolboxes all over social media. I had been dying for one but didn't have the space. This summer I did some major purging and finally was able to bring this baby home!

If you haven't seen one of these boxes yet, they are a tool organizer that you usually see used for screws and nails. I remember my dad always had these in the garage for his gadgets. I ordered mine from Amazon but you can probably find them at any hardware store. There are many different types and styles with different numbers of drawers, but here is a direct link to the one I ordered: Toolbox
Unfortunately you won't find these in pretty colors. I mean, I get it, they're supposed to be in a garage. But this dull grey color just wouldn't cut it. So I bought some mint colored spray paint from Home Depot and added this job to my husband's Saturday honey-do list! It turned out so pretty!
Now what's an organization toolbox without pretty organization labels?! This tropical watercolor clipart was calling my name as soon as I saw it. I think I may make matching binder covers with this clipart too....
You can download these labels in my TpT store for free here: labels. They are editable but if you want to match the font, it's called Coffee Makes Me Smile by A Perfect Blend.
Print out the labels on cardstock, cut, and secure them in the box with a little bit of scotch tape. I didn't laminate them but that may make them a bit more durable.
Now my desk looks so cute with an extra pop of color! And my desk drawers have much more space now that all my gadgets and office supplies are stored in here.
Enjoy!
