Trash to Treasure

My husband comes home one day and says "Honey, go look in the back of my truck". I was so excited because I know my husband, he never thinks to pick up something on the side of the road much less a dumpster. If you knew my husband you would just know that's just not him. Well, he did and I am so happy that he did. He found these 2 lockers in the dumpster where he works. I'm just sad there wasn't more. I could have used another set.
We unloaded them and have been working on them since day 1. 2 weeks later and we have finally finished our project. There was a lot of sanding, painting, oiling and fixing a few minor dents.
This past Sunday my hubby hung them up so that the kids could start using them. The kids are so excited they finally get to use their lockers..... AND because they have lockers at home.
Here are some before and after pictures I promised.
(next time I will show you what I found on the side of the road in the trash *SIGH*)
Enjoy!
