New White Painted Mudroom Lockers

Rusty lockers get a bright white makeover for the perfect industrial mudroom addition! 

I have a slight (okay, major) problem with keeping or wanting to keep a lot of the items I pick for my vintage booth.   It's probably a good thing that my house is small, but that doesn't stop me from keeping some of my favorite finds.  

Most recently, I updated a set of lockers that have been sitting in my garage waiting to be painted.  I bought them to update and sell, but quickly realized they would be perfect for the mudroom.  I originally planned on moving a larger set of lockers to the mudroom, but the smaller set fit the space much better.

If you follow me on Instagram and watch my stories then you may have seen the process of the locker makeover.  They weren't in terrible shape, but they did have some rust that needed to be taken care of. 

Rusty lockers before
I used a wire scratch brush to smooth out and remove any chippy rust and paint.   Then I cleaned the lockers with hot soapy water, covered the handles with frog tape and spayed them with multiple LIGHT coats of Rust-Oleum white satin spray paint

The lockers didn't have tags, so I added 4 Lyon locker tags to each locker using a Pop Rivet Gun.

I had never used a Pop Rivet Gun before and love how it made the tags look like they were there all along.

There are four lockers, which gives the kids plenty of room to store their book bags, jackets and shoes without taking up a lot of space.

I didn't plan on keeping the lockers when I started updating them, but I'm so glad I did.  They add the perfect industrial touch to the modern vintage vibe of the mudroom.
