Hi, my name is Ashley, and I'm addicted to organization hacks! I'm going to show you how I quickly and easily made this craft storage container pretty using the colors in my therapy room. I love the teal color. Here's how I made this storage toolkit for organizing my articulation cards.

How To Make An Articulation Toolbox
I ordered the Akro-Mils 24 drawer storage and craft cabinet from Amazon. I used the Devine Color by Valspar Glossy Color in “Devine Crush” at Target.
They had many colors to choose from, but ya know, this was the prettiest.
I set up in the garage so as to get ventilation but not wind. Wind and spray paint do NOT go together well. I had a large section of black craft paper (newspaper works too) to protect the garage floor surface. Next, I took out all the clear drawers and set them aside and positioned the storage container face up.
I followed the directions on the spray paint can. It went on beautifully and I was actually surprised with how easy it was. No drips or anything. I did have to work a little bit closer to get all the inside covered well. I did 2 coats and it dried in about 2 hours. I then brought it inside and let it sit on newspaper to finish drying overnight – ya know…just in case.
I made these labels to coordinate! After laminating them, I used a paper cutter to cut them out.
I used double sided tape to adhere to the front of the clear drawers. Here is the finished product.
The 24 clear drawers measure: 4-3/8-Inch x 2-Inch x 5-1/4-Inch and my Articulation Cards fit perfectly. I love that these drawers easily pop out for me to take over to my table.
This was a super easy, fun project. It already changes the whole feel of my speech room!
Now go get your DIY on!
