Blessed & Blue Locker Doors

By Ree Lawrence in Georgetown, TX.

Why use baskets on open shelving when you can make doors? These open white shelves were blessed with these beautiful, blue, locker style doors!  This blue is chameleon like as well.  Nice and cheery in the morning with the natural light and more toned down and muted as light grows dim.  There is no better color for a home office or school room!

As far as making the doors, the wood was cut the size of the openings, and then was painted with a coat of General Finishes Persian Blue and then coated with Flat Out Flat finish.  

To give them that fantastic old locker feel, some original Lyons locker tags were attached, along with an antique brass label pull.  The doors were attached with antique brass hinges and easily fastened closed with some magnetic touch latches.
