Locker Shelves

At my school (this one here) you get a full sized locker when you become a sophomore. Serious luxury over here.

To help you maximize your locker space, the wood shop at my school makes wooden locker shelves for students so that we can store all our books. At the end of the year, when the seniors clean out their lockers, they'll give their shelves to a freshman to use next year. A member of my lacrosse team gave me hers and I stored them in my basement all summer, waiting for a idea to come to decorate them.

Cause plain wood is just not going to cut it, am I right?

Anywho, I don't have a before picture (I need to get better at that), but just trust me when I say it was plain boring wood.

I wrapped ribbon scraps around the sides and weaved scraps of fabric across the shelves using my new favorite tool, the staple gun!

3 hours and half a package of staples later...

Here it is in my locker with my new textbooks at the bottom (ugh...textbooks...). My brother thinks I should put a disco ball in there too...what do you all say?
