Chalkboard Storage Box Craft

Sherri Osborn
Not too long ago I was cleaning out the cupboards in my bathroom and decided that the first aid kit had to go. After all, it is a large, metal box taking up almost an entire shelf and all it really held was band-aids and a small tube of antibiotic cream. The problem was trying to figure out what to do with it. I didn't just want to throw it away.

I knew I had to give this box a facelift so it could be used else where. Not only is it a sturdy box with a nice handle and working hardware, the inside has 4 different compartments. It is about 12-inches tall, 16-inches wide, and 4-inches deep.

I haven't exactly decided what I will use it for yet, which makes the gray chalkboard paint I used on the front perfect. I can change what it says as often as I like until I decided what I want to use it for.

  • Age Guideline: 12 Years and Up

The above age and time guidelines are estimates. This project can be modified to suit other ages and may take more or less time depending on your circumstances.

Now let's begin by gathering the supplies...
