Too Cool For School Lockers

These Too Cool For School Lockers may be super cute now, but when I first got my hands on them, they were a hot mess.  See how I whipped them back into shape and gave them a fun, multi-colored paint job in this Murals by Marcy video tutorial.


In case you’re wondering, I used Valspar Signature Paint with primer in it.  Colors are Everglade Deck (the darker blue used on the body of the lockers),  Boughs of Pine (the green color), and Gypsy Rouge (the purple color).  I added white to the Everglade Deck to get the lighter shade of blue for the doors.

    Am wondering, if you please to tell, how much white did you add to get that lighter blue color? Did you measure it out by parts, for instance, or just eyeball it? Because, I love that color! I think it would look beautiful with my Valspar Gypsy Teal.

    Also, thanks for the inspiration. I wasn’t sure if I liked Gypsy Rouge or not, as it is so hard to tell from looking at paint chips on a computer screen. But, I can see, from your photos shared, that I would like it very well. Also found one someone else posted of a door painted this color. Beautiful!

    How in the world did you get the locker doors off?
