It's Monday Made It! Woohoo! Today I am sharing two Monday Made Its!
First up, the block letters I purchased from the dollar bins at Micahel's! As soon as I saw the letters that Kristen from Easy Teaching Tools painted, I knew that I needed to get some for my classroom! I quickly headed over to my local Michael's and sat on the floor searching for all the letters that I needed. Only problem - I could only find red A's and a pink R and D! Can you all say "SPRAY PAINT!?!"
Here are what my letters looked like before:
Introducing Seaside and Key Lime spray paint:
And here are what my letters looked like after:
Again, I had one small problem! The pink caddy was the perfect color for my classroom, but my two coworkers both have a different color scheme. One uses turquoise and black, while the other uses lime, turquoise and red. Soooo, I decided to spray paint them, and by I, I mean my wonderful husband, a.k.a. The Spray Painting King!
Remember the spray paint from my "READ" letters?!?! I used the same Seaside color to paint the caddies turquoise. First, I taped off all the white.
Then, my hubby got right to spray painting! It took about three coats, but they turned out BEAUTIFUL!
Kevin and Amanda Fonts to customize each caddy! Here's a close up of my pink caddy:
I LOVE it! I almost want to go back and buy another one for myself, but I bought out all three Targets in my area! They are 50% off right now and come in pink, navy and white, if your Target still has any!
The one is for our new teacher who I am mentoring! I am going to fill it with Sharpies, Flair Pens, Ink Joys, and a few other teacher goodies! Shhhh! Don't tell!

Now, I am just deciding if I should add coordinating ribbon to the handle... What do you think? Ribbon or no ribbon?
