Scavenging doesn't always work out, especially when buying something that comes with a plan, i.e. "It looks nice, but it could use a paint job or new upholstery...and it's only $10!" But when it does work out, it becomes a favorite piece--or at the very least, a great DIY story to tell all your friends and neighbors. We suspect that these lockers could be just that for Paper Pony: Bought off of a school district maintenance man for a mere $15, she spray painted the door a soft green and moved it into her garage/office as her arts and crafts organizer.
