Re: School locker makeover

The school locker restoration looks great.  I have some rusty wrough iron furniture which is out in the weather and its going rusty.  Would the rustoleum 2X be suitable to restore that as well?

I would be looking to remove as much rust as possible first before painting using something like this - https://www.bunnings.com.au/chemtech-1l-rust-off-rust-remover_p1107356

That looks brilliant.  Have been looking out for old school lockers to do something similar.  Henriette

Hi @HenriEtte,

 

I trust @timdawg appreciates your kind feedback. I like @stephenjo's suggestion of checking with the local secondary schools.  My high school always had several that were sitting unused out in the weather waiting for the next skip bin to arrive.

 

What do you plan on making out of them as I trust our members would like to follow along with such an interesting project?

Re: school locker makeover

Hi Mitchell, I thought I would like to turn the lockers into a feature and cupboard space.   Similar style to the original post - spray paint colour of choice and a really nice piece of wood for shelf on top.   Yes, checking outside schools is a good idea.

Sounds fantastic @HenriEtte. Looking forward to seeing what you can do once you get your hands on a locker. Hopefully other members will have some further suggestions for you.
