I painted a set of old lockers with fusion mineral paint and I think you’re going to love them as much as I do!
A set of old school lockers has been on my DIY list for a looooong time now. This set from Lauren McBride’s house was my initial inspiration.
A while back my husband drug home a set that was left at a job site. I don’t even think he knew about my secret wish.
But alas, they got stuffed in our shop and filled with miscellaneous shop junk. Ok, maybe that was too harsh. I mean, paraphenalia.
Anyway, they were not living up to their full potential, if you know what I mean.
Time went by and when my son’s fifteenth birthday became a topic of conversation, he informed us that what he really wanted instead of a big party was . . . .wait for it . . . . a ROOM MAKEOVER.
The moment I had been waiting for had arrrived.
Time to really let those lockers shine, in a teen boy’s room.
I had seen Liz Marie paint her set with Fusion Mineral Paint and was quite intrigued.
Time to try something new and expand my DIY experience.
After ordering some in the color Ash and giving it a go, I have formed some preliminary opinions which I will pass on to you.
Liz Marie finished her lockers with a liming wax to give them an almost chalkboard feel. I tried a sample patch down in the corner on one side and determined it was too girly for my son’s room.

For now they are sitting on my porch and, believe you me, I tried my darnest to get my son to let me use them somewhere besides his room!
He won’t budge, so stay tuned for his room reveal in the next few weeks.
And I’d love to hear in the comments your different paint experiences. Have you tried Fusion Mineral Paint? Did you get a smooth finish?? Let me know, I love to learn from my people! xoxo
