It was just never "finished" and doesn't jive with the rest of the space in any sense. It's a giant mosh of toys, puzzles, and books. The last frontier of that room.
I mean, its directly across from this gallery wall... just not giving off the same vibe!
|Gallery wall and custom lamp shade how-to found here. I left plenty of room to add to it over the years.|
I had envisioned building in a desk surrounded by pantry height shelving for more storage of course! Something kind of like this.
I was over the moon excited! They were the perfect size, perfect feel for the space, and even better than what I had in mind. Just think of all the things I can hide in there!! And there is even a row of shelves at the top that can be mine all mine (because the kids can't reach them!)
So here they are right this very second. My biceps got a two day massive workout from scrubbing every sticky, dirty, nasty teenage whatever-ness off these babies. There is still one pesky piece of blue gum stuck to the bottom... I think I might just leave it :-) Goo B Gone is a miracle worker by the way!! It even ate through duct tape!
I'll leave you with a little vintage locker inspiration. I am pretty sure they are going to be sprayed green with my new sprayer from Will (you know your husband truly loves you when he supports your hobby that drives him totally bonkers).
On another note, Rebekah and family are making the trek to NC this weekend!! Maybe I'll make her help me paint these. That is, after we watch our kids and husbands participate in the Mad Mountain Mud Run! Awesome pictures to come!!
