a new, but vintage-inspired locker from quip co.

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.

  1. They are all just wonderful!…and such personality…Have to agree with bronwyn/cracklingpine the set of lockers with the mirrors and rollers is my favorite. There is something pretty cool about those wheels!
