I thought it would make a nice chalk/eraser holder for my kids large chalkboard in the playroom (which I ended up hanging on the wall, by the way....too tempting for my little boy to tip over on his sister's heads).
It kind of reminded me of a tool kit, so I spray painted it a nice cherry red.
Then, I taped off a section to paint with chalkboard paint.
After it all dried, I mod podged some fun paper on the bottom.
And there you go---a new place to store our chalk and erasers.
The handle makes it nice and easy for my kids to carry around...don't know if that's a good thing or not! But, it's fun and they love it!
