DIY Storage Lockers {No Mudroom? No problem!}

I love my new lockers, and I am in love with building! I think the Kreg Pocket Jig is my new best friend!

This is my first project, and I made a couple of changes to Ana's awesome plans. I used bead board for the backing instead of ply wood, and I added divider shelves on the bottom shelf. I also added hooks on both sides of each locker so that my kids can hang lots of stuff.

Since I am a total beginner builder, I made a few mistakes as I built these lockers. If you are a beginner, too, please check out my post on so that you don't have to make the same mistakes! I included a chart that shows the order I used to put everything together and added instructions for the extra dividers.

I am loving my organized space (and so are my kids)!

Finish Used
This project was painted with 2 coats of Bare Wood Primer and finished with two coats of Valspar Rapids in Semi Gloss.

Hint--one quart of paint is not enough! I bought one quart of primer and one quart of paint. I scraped the cans clean and had to leave a few hidden spots with only one coat of paint. I have nothing left for touch up. Splurge and buy the larger can. You can always use it to paint accent pieces to match!
