It didn't start off so pretty.
This is what it looked like when I snagged it at a yard sale for $5...
Pretty nasty wouldn't you say?
I would have loved to leave the color, but it was a very bad yellowish-white. I could also see that it was originally green, so painting something similar seemed like a great idea!
I lightly sanded my locker just to remove loose paint,
I chose the color Caribbean from the Be Junk Chic Paint Collection.
You can't really tell, but the center panel on the doors are a weird cardboard type material. The paint went on so smooth that it saved me from having to replace it right away! So nice!
Plus, Its the perfect blue/green color and feels very vintagey!
Normally I would have made my own paint, but after using my Be Junk paint, I'm not sure I can ever go back! It was a pretty large locker and used less than 1/2 a pint of paint. YAY!! That means I can paint more things!!!!!!!
After just two coats of paint (and about 1 hr of work - prep included!) I distressed it slightly and gave it a coat of wipe on poly. I could have waxed it, but this is in a high traffic area and I wanted a little extra durability. I will definitely be trying the wax on my next project tho!
What do you think?
Turned out pretty great, right??!!
