Metal Cabinet turned Locker

I found this old cabinet at an antique store back in August for a mere $15 dollars. I had big plans for it and have finally been able to give it a makeover.

My son's room has a lot of sports decor, so he really wanted to make it look like a locker.

We spray painted it red and I found these locker plates online. I had a hard time deciding on the numbers I wanted. I really thought I should use consecutive numbers, but then, I decided to be different and I ordered a 9 and an 18 for his birthdate.

It was hard to get a good pic of it. For some reason it looks really splotchy. He loves it! He stores all kinds of stuff inside it!

I'm so glad I brought that nasty metal cabinet home!!

I'm posting to Miss Mustard Seed's party.
