So now that they are in the studio, I have to figure out what to do. Paint another coat? If I can manage it in the house, I'd totally do it. That beast is NOT coming back down those steps. Or put my decoupaging hat on and see how altered I can make them? Could be cool - could be a disaster. Or just stick a whole bunch of "stuff" on the outsides with magnets? I think this is going to be my short term solution. I still have to fix the bottoms of the insides as they are a bit worse for wear and I don't want to put my fabric and fibers on that
I think I am going to have boards cut to the dimensions of the "floors" and then cover those with fabric scraps. It should do the trick and I think it'll be better than contact paper. I've also thought about adhering the fabric directly to the bottom, but the chance of rust seeping through makes me a little squeamish about doing that.
Oh, and because I always forget about taking a "before" photo, this is the monstrosity that came out of the studio; realize there hasn't been a TV in it for years. It started as the family entertainment center, morphed into a toy cabinet when we need one for the 2-3 year old, and finally found a home as a catch-all in my studio. We've laid it to rest. The garbage men begrudgingly picked up the dismantled pieces this morning.
And so it goes. I'll be sure to take photos of the lockers once they are stocked. I see a trip to organizeit.com in my near future. Those lockers are prime real estate. I'll need to use every cubit of space.
