Storage for my Classroom

I am a teacher and my school is a brand new school leasing out an old school building for us to use. The classrooms were completely empty and I needed storage solutions. I didn't have cubbies for the kids to put their belongings in, nor did I have any storage for my own supplies and things for the kids/classroom. So I decided to build "lockers" for them with the additional storage, plus some bookcases to store supplies on. One of my fellow teachers loved them so much, she asked me to build her some - so I did. My classroom has the BLACK "lockers" and bookcases, the Honey colored are my fellow teacher's bookcases.

I'm surprised the district hasn't hired you to create storage for all the classrooms! These are really nice. What lucky kids - and coworkers.

Hi, was the $350 price tag for just this main piece pictured or for everything including all the lockers? I'd love dimensions on this main storage piece! Are there plans anywhere?! Thanks!

the $350 cost was for everything in the pictures. the plans I used are linked - the main storage is just 2 of the bookcases stacked one on top of the other.
