The online store has them in white, red and espresso color with different style doors.
After doing some research, I was able to sketch a design based on the plans I found on this website. This plan is for a double vintage wooden locker cabinet but I wanted two single cabinets so I made a few modifications.
I was so excited to get started that I forgot to document this furniture making process!
If you follow the instructions on the website and put your engineering mind and skills to the task, you will end up with a something like this....
My cabinets measurements:
16 inches deep X 72.75 inches tall X 16.5 inches wide.
14.75 wide X 69.75 tall
15 inches X 15 inches
- Circular saw (I find it easier to use than the table saw for trimming the door width)
- Miter saw (for trimming small pieces)
- Router (for door grooves resembling paneling)
- Kreg Jig Pocket hole kit (for joining the top and bottom pieces to the side panels)
- Kreg Jig shelf hole kit
- Brad Nail Gun (for attaching the back panels and foot trim)
Instead of buying large plywood panels and cut them to size as the website suggests, I purchased:
- 6 wood furniture panels that measure 72x16 for all four sides and both doors. (photo here)
- 2 (1/4 inch thick x 2 x 2) wood pieces trimmed to 1.5 inches high X 16.5 wide to fit the front foot of the cabinet
- 4 (3/4 inch thick x 2 x 15) wood pieces to support the middle shelf for cabinet stability
- 1/4 inch thick paneling for the back
- 6 (3/4 inches) Hinges
- 2 Cabinet handles
- 4 Cabinet magnet latches for the tops and bottoms of each locker
- Paint or Stain
- Sand paper
- Kreg Jig Wood Screws
- Nails for Brad nail gun
I added the metal plaques. Those were a great find at $2 a piece from Pottery Barn.
