I spray painted my toolbox white since I prefer that colour. However, this is optional.
1. Firstly, print and cut out your labels. Print on regular 8.5×11” paper or white cardstock paper. OPTIONAL: Laminate your labels.
2. Next, take all off the drawers out.
3. After that, tape the labels to the front of each drawer (inside or outside of the drawer). Use clear tape. Put your toolbox labels INSIDE the drawer if you’re not laminating to preserve the quality. You can also use double-sided tape to tape the labels directly on the FRONT of your drawer which is what I did.
To conclude, you only need 3 easy quick steps to customize and create a boho chic toolbox.
