A while back I was driving home and saw a "FREE" sign on something on the sidewalk. I always get a little excited when I see signs that say "FREE." Usually its junk but this time it wasn't. At least it wasn't to me.
Actually there was 3 of them that were sitting out on the street. I'm thinking they were shelves but I didn't quite know. Anyway I told my Love about them and he went and picked them up for me.
I didn't end up using them right away for what I had planned (which I will get to) but I did make good use out of them while they were sitting in my garage. I used them for each of the kids birthday parties. First for Bear's 50's party. A record display and jukebox stand.
For Big Guy's Lego Party they were made into giant Lego's.
And for Monkey's Monster party I used one of them for pin the eyeball on the monster.
So hey, I didn't get to my project right away but I did make good use out of them. Okay back to my great plan for these things.
I had mymy Love take off the random diagonal board on the back and nail a backing to them. He sanded them down for me and I primed and painted them. Pretty soon these.....
Turned into these. Wa-La.....Lockers for the kids. Are you as excited as me? I have been wanting to have some sort of place for the kids to put all their backpacks and sweatshirts after school and knew these would be perfect. I love the way they turned out.
Not sure what the fourth one will be for. Right now the kids say its daddy's locker.
And within a few minutes I see this.
Goodbye to backpacks and sweatshirts on the floor! Hello to a very happy mommy.
