The locker beast is done!

My office had recently relocated, and they were ready to give up the old Ikea furniture and do something fun!  I took the task upon myself to do some projects to help out!  
There was a lack of storage space- particularly hidden storage- so I found these ugly lockers on KSL for a steal of a deal.  They were all rusty and dented, and there were some serious skeptics who weren't so sure that they could be turned around...
Challenged accepted!
Poppa White loaned me his wire brush drill head (is that the official name?), which really helped get all the junk off of them.

I painted the handles gold...

And the frame black! I then did an ombre yellow-blue spectrum.  I think that it turned out awesome!

Ta-da! What a difference!

These things were kind of a pain in the butt, and took for-freaking-ever, but I think I proved the skeptics wrong :)  This sucker will provide a ton of storage, and in my opinion, look pretty cool, too!


  1. Wow! That looks amazing! You seriously have a gift because those lockers went through a whole transformation! I love the ombre effect :)
