Anyone lurking around this Palace knows my little Craigslist problem. Well, after falling off the Craigslist 12 step wagon I'm on the prowl again.... for old school lockers.
I have a room with 3 boys and have decided that I can look at trashy lockers better than I can look at the things on their floor. I set off on a tour through blogland for locker inspiration and do believe I found a few gems.
The great thing about these babies are that they're durable and age only makes them look better... age and a coat of fantastic spray paint. I could use a boys room full of lockers.
... and maybe a dining room as well. This little mini locker is sold at the Bombay Co. and is great for keeping baseball equipment or school books.
Now, if you're lucky enough you may find pull out bin lockers. Craigslist isn't the only place to find lockers. Check you're local city, county or state government surplus auctions. They're often found by the bulk.
If you need to make a quick closet... how great would this be? First I need to retrain my boys to hang the clothes on the rod... and my 13 year old may not be able to fit his size 10.5 shoe in one of those cubbies. LOVE this color!
I've seen several tall single column lockers for sale. IKEA has a few options for sale.
A locker for diapers, socks, shoes, shirts, pants, toys, bath supplies... you name it! Don't forget to head over to one of those fantastic online hardware places for clever classy looking ways to label your new space.
I'm putting this locker project in the que. It falls right after repainting my 3 dressers, expanding my laundry room, organizing my closets, and throwing away all the unmatched shoes. Need to come clean and start my 12 step Craigslist program again... sigh...
