I wanted to copy an art caddy that Jen did for her boys on I Heart Organizing, http://tinyurl.com/jencaddy
I even ventured to two Targets for the exact caddy but no luck..boohoo! I did find another cute alternative in Home Goods though. It was all white and I thought I could paint the front with chalk board paint to make it look a little cutsier and fill it with art supplies. I think it came out pretty cute and my little one especially seams to like it. I keep it right on the kitchen table so the kids can get to it as they please.
Then I had picked up these adorable plastic caddies from Target for a buck each! I wasn’t sure what I was going to use them for but I knew I would find something lol
I not so neatly taped off a patch in front of each and went at it again with my chalk board paint. So now the bubbles play doh and chalk each have a home. Let me tell you the kids love them and they are still nice and neat!
The only issue that arose was that my husband wanted to know if I possibly could have thought of a different name for the bubble caddy lol hehehehe what fun would that have been???
My last chalk board paint project for the night was to add a writable label to my coolers. I have to tell you hubby was not thrilled I did this to our 3 brand new coolers. But how cool to be able to not only label your coolers with the words, ice, beer, lemons/limes, soda, etc. but when you go to a bbq or picnic you can put your last name on it and never worry about someone else grabbing it by mistake! I thought this was genius! He’s still not sold on it though :)
