lately, i love been loving lockers.  like want a pair for my house in a bad way kind of loving.  i envision them in a mudroom looking all vintage and cool but hiding all of my kids things.  coat hooks just don’t seem to be doing the trick anymore.

and what about in the kitchen like the photo above?  that thought never occurred to me.  i’m also in desperate need of a pantry (i don’t have a built in) thanks to the appetites of 4 little (some not so little anymore) la las.  the built in version (pictured) are pretty great, right?

of course, they would great in a kids room or a playroom to hide and organize all of the toys.  i think lockers would also be a great solution and addition to an office holding papers, pens, notebooks, binders, files and everything this and that.  but alas, i’m still dreaming of them to hold my kids things.  i’d even be happy to have a set in the garage collecting our mile high shoe pile.

what about you?  would you use lockers in your home?  have you seen any other great uses for them? i hope to find some soon!

if your looking for other ways to make your home creative and fun, i’m sharing some tips on how to do so over here.

I LOVE the incorporation of lockers in homes. I think it looks so urban. I would love to get a hold of some old high school lockers and use them as shelving in my kitchen. Just thinking about it makes me smile.

oooh…makes me want lockers in my house too. Our hooks are always overflowing with jackets and bags. Hiding them in a locker would be super!

Do you know the source for the dark gray metal lockers featured on this page? We would like to purchase if they are available through a retailer.
