Old Gym Lockers with SK

Heavy Metal Gym Lockers with a New Finishes

Friends and cohorts are great to have on your side. I have several friends that save special finds for me.

I had designed my studio around three very special pieces of furniture. The old lockers being number one on my list.

These old gym lockers had stood outside in the weather for ten years by the time I got my hands on them. They had dents and rust galore.
 
I painted the interior with a spray primer that had been tinted aqua.
I then painted the interior of the doors with Modern Master Metal Effects Paints, copper and iron.
This color was chosen to match my studio floors.
Although the picture below seems to be a different color than the floors, they are actually the same exact paint and colors.

The exterior is painted with my copper and rust oxizing paints from Modern Masters.
Using  Hard Rock Putty paste and a vine stencil, I added a three-D design and painted it with the iron/rust oxizing paint.

 I screwed through the metal backs of the locker to my shiplap wall for security. When they are filled with my tools and paints it is very heavy.
The shelving is old wood. Adding and glueing pretty old black paper finishes the inside backs.

The finished lockers are placed on a shelf which hold all my stencils. We then crown molded the top and I painted it rust.
As my studio is finished one step at a time, the finished lockers are all I envisioned, as I dreamed of my amazing personal space.

Thanks for visiting. SK

This "little" project was a joy to create. The old, rickety chairs, little desk and bedside table had seen better days.
