Repurposed Vintage Red Locker Storage BenchOctober 7th, 2014 in member junk
All I had to inspire me to start this project was an old locker door with the door facing. So once I got it in my head I wanted to make it a bench, I built a custom box that would serve as storage. I made an extra, separate compartment in between the legs (at the bottom if it was standing) for some extra storage and fun. A bottle opening compliments the side on that end.
When I got finished with the building, painting and distressing, I needed a seat back of some sort. Enter antique Singer sewing machine bases! I've got plenty! The base sides worked great and even resemble seat backs. Some vintage casters finish things up.
