I saw a display of locker decorations in one of my local stores a while back and thought that they were the cutest thing ever for a young lady, so when I was invited to check these out, I jumped at the chance. Now that most schools are back in session, or will be shortly, this is the perfect time for every girl to personalize her locker and brighten her day with the Locker Lookz products.
These are just a few of the Locker Lookz decorations: Mirror, Wallpaper, Motion Sensored Chandelier, Flower and Bins.
OMG – You’ve got to get these Locker Lookz products for your daughter.
As most of you know, all my children are grown, and my granddaughters do not fall within the realm of the age group that these products are designed for, as they are targeted for ages 8-14. So, I put my thinking cap on and came up with an idea of where I could get a hold of a school locker in order that I could put my decorating skills to the test. I will admit that it took me an hour or so to come to this conclusion. The church that I attend also has a school, so I contacted the Principal and made the appropriate inquiries whether I could “borrow” a locker for this project. Only the upper grade (6th, 7th, and 8th) students have use of the school lockers, so the Principal contacted the various teachers to ask whether there were any empty lockers that I might be able to use. He then returned my email with an enthusiastic “yes”; he did have a locker available.
By coincidence, we have a new Director of Christian Education, who will be arriving in Jacksonville within a couple weeks, and since he has a school-aged daughter who falls within this age range, it was decided that I would decorate a specific locker for Alyssa. I know moving is difficult for all involved, especially the children, so this will be a pleasant surprise for her to welcome her our state, city, church and school.
The Locker Lookz products will fit any standard size locker, but as you can see in the following picture, these lockers are a bit smaller; however, I was able to modify the wallpaper to fit with no difficulty whatsoever with just a pair of scissors. Psst… don’t tell anyone, but the back of the wallpaper contains markings just for this purpose. By the way, the wallpaper is pre-cut into 4 pieces to fit the standard size lockers.
The wallpaper itself attaches to the locker with 12 individual Locker Lookz magnets. So, the wallpaper is easily adjusted or removed in just a few minutes. The other decorations also attach to a locker with magnets, but they are incorporated into the various accents themselves.
Other decorations are available such as Rugs, Clocks, a Dry-Erase Board and Curtains. The decorations come in 8 different patterns, and all of the accessories can be mixed and matched to the various pattern. I really love the Chandelier as it is motion sensored. It swings just like a real chandelier and really sets off the locker. Don’t tell Alyssa, but I have ordered the Curtains and Rug for her to add to her locker.
I would imagine that Alyssa will probably want to move the two bins that I placed on the side of the locker and perhaps put them on the inside of the locker door itself; however, I wanted to demonstrate how sturdy the binds are made. These bins would be perfect for spare change, or keys of any sort, or those secret notes from friends.
And what is a surprise without a card, so I put my cutter to work making a “homemade” welcoming card for this special young lady.
To find a retailer near you that carries the Locker Lookz products, simply go to their web page and submit your zip code, and stop by their Facebook page to say hello.
Since every Locker Lookz decoration attaches to a locker with magnets, your young lady can move her decorations around to her heart’s content. You can even play around on the Locker Lookz website where you or she can design a locker virtually or watch their video. I am confident that your daughter or special young lady will love having these fashionable products to express herself all at an affordable price.
