give lockers a new life.
industrial-looking lockers present such wonderful opportunities for storage solutions. the vintage locker faced with mirrors just below caught my eye and i started thinking about how great an old locker given new life can be. when you’re short on storage closets and need to stash some of your stuff away, re-purposed lockers can be a fun alternative to simple shelving, or boring old cabinets. there’s lots of vintage-inspired new lockers out there, but an old locker has a past, a story from its previous incarnation at a bowling alley, the gymnasium, or high school hallway. memories flood in — waiting for that glimpse of your favorite crush, or a quick stolen kiss before class. maybe it’s where you and your best girlfriends met up before lunch period. anyway, they do that for me, and i like the way lockers store away all that is unsightly, but look cool doing so. you can find them easily on eBay, etsy, flea markets and craigslist, too.
