Industrial Locker Style

we love lockers!
They offer such versatile, powerhouse storage solutions as well as adding chic, 
industrial style to any room or decor.

On one of our recent picking days
we lucked upon an old schoolhouse awaiting demo...and looky what we found inside!! 
We have these beauties available in 1, 2 and 3 bank options.
They are easily adaptable to your home decor or storage needs by simply removing or adding just a couple pieces of (included) hardware. 

The stylish square window openings allow for hidden storage, 
but with just a simple, hands free peek, you can view what's inside. 
The windows also provide proper ventilation for clothing or linen storage. 

This is our last set of this size...
a 3 bank of 6 row lockers. 
(we love this style/size for perfect pantry storage!)

Pinterest is chock full of locker styling ideas. 
Here are some of our favorites...

Here we have happy el&em locker customers 
who have been kind enough to share a few photos of our lockers used in their home decor. 

(the biggest challenge: LOADING! (yay!!) they fit!)

This is Lisa's study. She opted on a 3 bank and a 1 bank, 
rearranging and reconnecting them into 2, 2 banks to flank her window. 
She finished the transformation with a nice coat of flat black paint.
LOVE it!! 

And this is Amber's den.
She bought a 2 bank and divided it to create a unique and one-of-a-kind media center. 
She plans to mount the television and place a nicely hewn shelf along the top of the lockers. 
What a great way to hide away all that cluttery media stuff!!

Thanks for sharing ladies!!

We just love seeing where and how our pieces find themselves in their new forever homes!
