What Paint to paint Metal School Lockers

I’ve been looking at these grey Archiveros for a while and I am amazed by how gorgeous they look after being painted off-white. I am so thrilled to share my homemade method to paint lockers painted with metal.

School lockers were something that I have collected over the years. They’re great to store things in and can be a great method of storing space in a beautiful way.

I am awestruck the fact that these lockers have an interesting story inside the walls. The story and history of those who spun the lock that they have on them fascinate me. Who kept their books in this lock? In what part of the country did the lockers reside? How many people were swayed by the lockers and were taken to prom or broke up with? I love the fact that in our house lockers will add an additional layer of history to the many wonderful antique pieces I’ve amassed.

Lockers for School within the Family Room

The lockers at school that were in the living room quite beat up. They definitely had many years of life and lengthy story.

These lockers held a variety items I used. I had a hammer, some screwdrivers, a container with screws and nails of various dimensions, as well as tape measures to ensure that they could be used in times of need. The other lockers, it’s safe to say, quickly filled with my favorite things!

It’s been on my list for quite a while painting these storage lockers. I wasn’t certain how difficult or simple it was to paint them, or how they would look. This past weekend, I decided that it was time to take on the lockers in the family room. I am very happy that I have finally completed this task.

In order to let you be impressed by how great they look check out how worn and shabby they looked in the prior photo below! It’s amazing that it took this long for me to finish painting these lockers. You Know what dinosaur has 500 teeth.

Vintage Lockers

I have lockers in boys’ bedrooms as well. As they grew up the lockers served as perfect for storing shoes, cleats and other sports equipment, books and socks. They were able to store all the items that get scattered across the floor and get tripped over!

Do you notice that both sets of lockers are equipped with a lock? I didn’t install the lock on my lockers, and I’m not sure of the combination. In the near future, I’ll get my kids to open the lockers and give me the keys. I have heard that there’s beer in one of them dating back to 8th grade. This means it’s more than 10 years old. I’m not certain if I’d like to learn what might be in the bottle. For more information, click to gabriel kuhn and daniel patry that would be the right place for you.

Any quesses?

I found the very first lockers in an antique flea market when the boys were just beginning to get older. It was popular for the boys that I started looking for them every time I went out for flea market shopping. The lockers were the perfect storage space for not only their cleats gloves, and sports equipment and gaming consoles, Pokemon card, Baseball cards and many other items that they needed a secure location to keep.

My son’s oldest was a swimming champion. In the blue lockers of his room were lined up across the top with medals and trophies. The lockers contained school notebooks texts and laptops, as well as swimming caps, CDs goggles, schedules for meetings and goggles.

My two sons were in rooms and shared the red locker set. They had lockers that in the rooms were lined with rows of volleyball and baseball medals and trophies. The locker at school is an ideal place to store baseball mitts and bats and balls.
