Remember P.E. Lockers?
I always though lockers were so cool, your own little place to store stuff.
While the kids today still have P.E. Lockers, the old days of Lockers to store
books in is gone. Too much Vandalism. My kids have these heavy backpacks they lug around all day.
You parents can empathize I am sure.
At any rate, while shopping at one of my favorite Antique stores,
Country Roads, http://whimzyswhimzies.blogspot.com/, a few months back I spied some cool old basket lockers. When I finally got around to deciding I wanted them, the dealer had removed them from the store because they didn't sell.
Katie told me they had another set.
She text messaged me pictures and I put them on layaway,
sight unseen. Crazy.
My Honey had to go and pick them up with a trailer as they were too large for his SUV.
Crusty, rusty and dirty...once they were scrubbed we moved them into my entry way.
They weigh a TON!
I lined the drawers with scrapbook paper...
As my main studio is my family room, in actuality my entire house is a working studio.
You know, we spread out art crap to every vertical surface when in the heat of creating...
voila...here they are.
I have filled every drawer with supplies and decorated the top with my favorite items...
Future Bling Babies and friends!!!
Thank you Country Roads for having an amazing store full of amazing dealers and artists!!!
