Upcycled Custom Triple-Locker Bookcase

I took a vintage triple-set of lockers and converted them into a lot of open storage.
The original doors were very stubborn so I had to cut them off. Once I did that, I knew exactly what direction this was going to take...
I used some vintage wire locker gym baskets up top to compliment the industrial vibe.
I used some extra coat hangers laying around the garage to add some more storage options. The original, vintage glass-bead house number plaque I found in an antique/collectible shop a while back.
I custom cut, painted and distressed all of the wood shelves. A vintage wooden depth gauge covers the front of each board for an added feature.
I left the original patina on the lockers. You just can't beat it!
Store away!
A single basket toward the bottom is there to catch gloves, hats, etc. below the coat hooks to find them quick.
