Not Your Average Locker (Decor)

This one's for the girls! I did not attend elementary, middle or high school in this country. So little did I know that hitting middle school is a bigger deal than most elementary school students could imagine and to some it might be intimidating. There is a clear distinction and not just because you are more independent and have to carry your books from class to class but also because you have your own locker - a really big deal! Setting up the locker is an event in itself. It needs to be organized just so - it has to work efficiently and also look good for you have a precious three minutes or so between classes to grab your stuff.

While shopping around online for the perfect locker shelf for middle school (last year's was a different size for a different locker) I came across LockerLookz. Dedicated to locker decor it has a variety of items one could use to dress up a locker, whatever the size may be and for different personalities.

Here are a few of the items available; all perfectly sized.

First up, wallpaper. White Zebra on Aqua Background, Purple Plaid, Black&White Key Scroll, Pink Polka Dots...

Fashion Bins to hold extra pencils, pens, and so on - like these in Aqua Argyle, Green/Blue Circle Dots or White with Black Dots.

Mirrors, Flowers, Dry-Erase Boards, all magnetic and available in other colors/patterns.
And Rugs! I had no idea that one could purchase a rug for a locker like these 12"x18" shag rugs.


And last but certainly not least, possibly the icing on the cake - 4 1/4" lamps and 5" chandeliers (motion-sensored and magnetized, of course) which run on AAA batteries!

And there is more in each category. Visit LockerLookz to see the entire collection. The website also has instructional videos to show how to install the accessories. And the site's store locator will help you find these items at a store near you.

To coordinate the space, one can visit the Design Your Locker feature and play around with the look before purchasing. So much fun!
I am sure this would make the transition from elementary school a little easier. These would make cute gifts too, I think.

Did you have these options or some of these available when you attended middle/high school? Would you have decorated yours?
