Upcycled lockers ...

After my school memories faded, I became a fan of lockers.  It just took some time to forget my annual back-to-school dream. (While sleeping I had forgotten my locker combination and returned to school unable to open the locker. Argh!)

While lockers were the bane of my existence as a student, their upcycled usefulness and industrial character has since won me over.

Their reincarnation into bookcases is a natural, as is the space saving storage solutions they offer.

I'm impressed with lockers tucked into the pantry as well as those that take center stage.

If you're interested in incorporating lockers into a design scheme, check out the local school district auctions. My husband and I have bought overhead projectors, globes, tables and desks at these auctions. There is a continuous supply of lockers at rock bottom prices, too. Just make sure you get those lock combinations. No need for bad dreams!
