Monday Made It Link Up

Click here to join in!

This will be my first attempt at linking up, so wish me luck!  I love all of the awesome ideas being shared at 4th Grade Frolics Monday Made It.  If only there was enough time to do it all!  Anyway, I wanted to share a few things I've been working on.

First off, I found these cute seats somewhere out there.  I'm not sure where, so sorry I don't know who gets the credit.  I am going to use these in my girls' rooms.  I plan to make a couple more for my classroom but I'll have to use sports fabric.  These are great for storing books, toys, games, etc. and doubling as a seat.  Fortunately, my husband is amazing with a saw and cut the plywood for the seat part.  I just added the batting, fabric, and staples.

 And, like all the other teachers out there, I also made an organizer.  Not sure who actually originated the idea, but I LOVE IT!!  I am going to try to get rid of my teacher's desk, so this will keep all of the junk stuff I normally have in my drawers.

 Thanks for stopping by!

I love the templates you used in your toolbox. Those would go perfect with my Mickey primary colors in my room. I would appreciate a copy of your template if you don't mind.

I made that toolbox next week. The crate seats were on my list until I splurged and bought some seats from Hobby Lobby. At least that was one project I could X out off my long To-Do list :)

I am going to get rid of my teacher's desk, too! I think it'll be a great change! I also made a toolbox last week to put all of my stuff (a.k.a. junk!) in! Love yours!

I made those crate seats last year and they were AMAZING for storage! I really don't know what I would have done without them. :)

And your toolbox is super super cute!

Too funny--both of our first link ups was Monday Made It, and both of our first Monday Made It was the Teacher Toolbox! So...what do you want to do next week? :) Ha!

You will love the crate seats in your classroom. I made four of them a couple of summers ago and the kids always pick those for a spot to read. I would love to get a copy of your labels for the toolbox. Please let me know if I could purchase them somewhere. Thanks!

Super cute toolbox! What font did you use? I got rid of my teacher desk last year, and I LOVED it! Frees up so much space... and let's be honest. I rarely sat at it, and all it did was hold stacks of papers for me!

Reaching for the TOP!

The font is Digs My Hart. I got it from They have a lot of really cool fonts for FREE! Thanks for stopping by. I'm going to go check out your blog now! :)

Do you have the labels for your toolbox for sale on TPT? I am doing a polka dot theme and those would be perfect!
