gym lockers

Those two words conjure up images of squeaky sneakers of sweaty socks, I know.

But when I saw these at my friend’s shop last week I had another vision in mind…

In this vision, the vintage beauties were not housing gym uniforms, but ironstone and crisp white linens.

With beautiful silver and fresh flowers perched on top.

Far, far from the land of sweat socks.

Have a beautiful weekend, friends!

  1. Ok, seriously!! How in the world do you manage to find EVERY SINGLE thing that I would buy for myself! Lol! If you ever see another set of these…think of me. I passed a set up years ago, and have been totally kicking myself ever since!

    Love it. You have awesome style. ;o)

  3. I totally agree with Mary’s comment. This is something I would absolutely buy if I see it. I love these ideas as they help me conjure up great ways to re-use things I see at thrift stores.
    Thanks!
