I recently moved into a Montreal flat, which means there are no closets in the bedrooms. Frustrated with the lack of style and quality found at Ikea and the high cost of an actual wardrobe anywhere else, I happened upon a set of old lockers at junk store, and thought I could transform them into the coolest wardrobe imaginable. I got my set of 3 full-sized lockers for $150 Canadian and then added about $30 of wood. So depending on the cost of the lockers, this is good value.
Step 1: Gathering parts
Start by gathering the necessary materials.
My materials and spec are according to my design, but can be modified as necessary. I decided to go with two lockers for hanging shirts, pants and coats and one locker as a shelf for t-shirts, underwear, jeans and the like.
1. A locker or set of lockers, of course.
2. Either an old wooden mop or broom (if you wanna go eco), or wooden dowel/curtain rod that can be cut to size for hanging clothes.
3. Long and narrow wood to create a frame for the shelving.
4. Thick pine or the like for the shelves themselves.
5. L brackets to support the shelves.
6. Plastic ties (or metal) to hang the wooden rods.
1. Measuring tape.
3. Screw driver.
