Daycare Organizer!

One of my best friends runs her own daycare. You know, to help make ends meet and be able to stay home and raise her own kids. She works hard in order to do the best for her family. 
BUT...as all you parents know. Being a full time mom, running a day care and running a small business (she also does that and more) doesn't leave a lot of time for organizing. 
Now remember this?

 It's an old dresser I picked up from the lady who has that barn...furniture..you can read about it HERE
So I wanted to do something special to help my friend out. 
And this dresser was begging to be used for something other than sitting in a barn..or for that matter in my workshop. 
It was low enough for her kids...but it only had two drawers. Not completely ideal for a daycare and the space she wanted to use it in. 
She needed something in her entrance way. Something that would help organize all the kids and her stuff, and still look good. 
Then the other day I stopped in at the ReStore. If I don't find things I can use, I often get ideas there. 
Well wouldn't you know it..I found something I could use, I mean something my friend could use. 

 Do you see where I'm going with this? 
I thought you might. 
I married the two pieces. 
She requested Black...so black is what she now has. 
 Amazing what a little bit of paint can do!
 The lettering on the drawers are for her own children.
 I added lettering to the rest of the boxes instead of the expected numbers.
I know the pics are not the best, but it's almost 11 pm and I really wanted to share with you. 
Hope you had a productive Wednesday!
