we fancified our old locker


I've had this locker for years. I bought it to go in the entry of the loft that my mom and I shared. It was perfect for keeping coats, scarves and hats in. When my husband and I bought our house, we moved the locker into my art room where it sat looking all old and dejected because I never used it. Truth be told, it looked kind of nasty outside of the loft.

So I did what I always do when faced with an ugly old piece of furniture. I broke out the spray paint! I turned that dingy old locker into an organized, pretty, glorious example of a wrapping storage area. I'm pretty darn proud of it.

I store scissors and tape and other wrapping sundries in those top Ikea drawers. the hanging canvas bags contain gift bags of various sizes. I keep boxes in the bottom.
I keep tissue paper in those plastic magazine organizers on the right side.
We drilled these little hooks into the side to make this handy little ribbon holder.
To think I almost scrapped it!
