Mint Locker Makeover
I wanted to hop on here real quick to show you the set of lockers I just finished for our next vintage market. I learned something with this project…lockers are a lot of work!!!! If you’re thinking about taking on a project like this, know that it can be very time consuming. You also need to be careful when dealing with rust so please take appropriate precautions.
If you look at the photo below, you can see the listing picture. If you keep scrolling you’ll see the inside and what I had to deal with. I decided to clean out the loose rust, spray paint it and then seal it.
For the interior, I used Rust-Oleum Satin Heirloom White spray paint. The color was spot on!
The exterior paint color is Sweet Pickins Milk Paint – Pantry Door. If you’re going to use milk paint but you don’t want the chippy look, remember to use lots of bonding agent. If I could do this project again, I would spray paint the exterior too. It would have cut my time in half (or more). Lesson learned!!!
Here’s the inside of the locker after it was spray painted.
And here’s the (sorry for the not so amazing iPhone quality) after photo. I’m seriously in love with the way they look. It’s difficult to see the true color but I think you get the idea. Minty Goodness!! If these don’t sell during the show, I’m bringing them home for myself!!!! They would make amazing outdoor storage!
Thank you so much for spending some time reading my blog and checking out my latest project.

Have a wonderful day!
