*I partnered with Krylon for this project. All opinions and ideas are 100% mine.
I’m so excited to show you this DIY project that I completed for our Wilmore house when we were on spring break!
It started with these old lockers that I found on Facebook Marketplace for 80 bucks.
I bought them while we were in Tennessee, and then we transported them to Kentucky to give them a brand new makeover.
They weren’t in great shape, but they weren’t in horrible shape either. I knew that they would look beautiful with a fresh coat of spray paint!
HERE ARE THE SUPPLIES I USED:
- 3 cans of Krylon Fusion All in One, Matte Spanish Moss
- 5 cans of Krylon Fusion All in One, Satin Black (inside of lockers)
- Painter’s tape
- 120 grit sanding sponge (just for spots of bumpy residue)
- small crafter’s paint brush for touch ups
- my Young Living lemon essential oil to remove stickers
- scissors or exacto knife
I used some of my YL lemon essential oil to get off the stickers, and then sanded any bumps on the surface, which was very few, with a 120 grit sanding sponge.
I covered the handles and number plates with painter’s tape. I didn’t take a picture of how I trimmed the excess tape off the number plates, but I used scissors like an exacto knife and cut around the number plate to remove the excess tape.
I also enlisted Cy to help me bend the metal top down and secure with a few extra screws. (Remember…it doesn’t have to be perfect to be beautiful!) *wink*
Once the lockers were prepped to paint, I had to decide which green shade from Krylon that I wanted to use. It was between Satin Italian Olive, and Matte Spanish Moss.
Although both colors were BEAUTIFUL, I decided I wanted to go with the darker color for the space I was going to use the lockers in.
Because the Krylon Fusion All-in-One is a PAINT + PRIMER, I did not have to do any sanding or priming to prepare the surface to paint.
This paint goes on smooth like butter, and it gives such a creamy, deep finish. Even my 17 year old commented on how amazing it went on! I seriously only needed one coat of paint to cover these lockers.
It took less than 15 minutes to spray paint the entire set of lockers!
Fusion All-In-One offers
- Superior adhesion and durability
- Indoor/Outdoor use with maximum rust protection o
- No sanding or priming required
- Big button spray tip with spray anyway capabilities (LOVE THIS FEATURE!)
This color of green is very on trend. Kyrlon is awesome about making sure they keep up with the color trends and provides them in so many shades and sheens! :)
When I removed the tape from the handles and number plates, there were a couple spots I needed to “touch up.” The best way to do this is spray some of your paint on a plate, and use a small paint brush to apply the paint to those spots.
I also used Krylon’s Fusion All in One Satin Black paint to give the inside of the lockers a brand new look!
Here is the BEFORE of the laundry room space that I was wanting to use these lockers in…
AND HERE IS THE AFTER!…
Isn’t she cute?!!!
I just love her in this space SO MUCH!!
After I spray painted the inside of the lockers black, I was able to fill them with supplies we need easy access to!
It’s hard to believe that this is what she used to look like…
She’s come a long way, baby! haha!
I know I say this EVERY TIME, but even after 20+ years of DIY’ing, it STILL amazes me what a single can of spray paint can do!
Now, I’m looking at the next project I can tackle with a can of Krylon Spray Paint, which you can find here! :)
