Monday Made It!


I think this may be the first time I have actually posted a "Monday Made It!" on a Monday....(insert pat on the back).

This morning I finally finished up my supply organizer! I know you all have already seen a ton of these puppies...but it's fun to see how everyone adds their own unique twist, right?

So here is my spin on it...

First, here is a supply list. By no means do you have to use these supplies, but this is what worked for me.


I wasn't the biggest fan of the gray, so I bought a cheap-o can of spray paint, and made mine white! Post painting, I began cutting my scrapbook paper. I literally just measured around the drawer frame for each size and then used the first piece of paper I cut as a template for the rest. Worked perfectly fine. 

Then I set about creating my labels. Here they are for your viewing and downloading pleasure:

I glued my labels to the scrapbook paper I had cut with a glue stick. You could most def. use your Mod Podge as well. Finally, I Mod Podged the paper to the front of each of the drawers. 

Here she is: 


A beaut, right?

    1. I know! Mine did too. I figured most of mine are the size of an index card so they should fit perfectly fine!

  12. I just created my labels last night but I am a little afraid to spray paint it. Did you sand it first? Your looks amazing!

    1. I did not sand mine first. I just sprayed a few coats and it seemed to be fine! Sanding may help though. I have seen others where people have used primer first too I believe. That may be an option, although like I said, I think mine covered sufficiently. Good luck!
