Back-to-school project! It’s a little organizer that attaches to the inside of a locker door with four magnets. The top door has a mirror and the bottom door has a dry-erase board.

Steve, Saw the newest (well to me) Rustoleum special paints they offer like the magnetic and chalkboard… I just saw the other day they now have at least in my store “Dry erase paint”. Not sure if you have seen this before but then again for project purposes a dollar sounds a whole lot better than probably $20-25.

Very cool Steve. I think the young folks would love these to ‘cutsomize’ their lockers. Once you broke the first half of the mirror, I was thinking the other side would be one of those magnified mirrors, maybe like they have at the circus.

I always get a kick out of your glue slopiness. Hey, it still works. You are REAL, dude. Keep up the good work.

My girls would love this project. I guess I’d better get busy. Thanks Steve.

BTW – Try a heat gun to get the mirror loose.

I guess I am getting old because I didn’t know that they don’t use lockers anymore. When did this happen? We had small lockers like that at our high school. You could barely fit the books in there let alone a coat! The organizer is a good way to have some extra storage. I love the dry erase board. I can see how that would come in handy.

Nice project! :)
