Kids School Station Using The Kmart Lockers

Over the past few years of my kids attending school, I have learned how important it is to keep all the school gear together and organised. This year I have one child off to high school, two kids in primary school and one child off to childcare! That’s a heap of school gear to keep organised, so I had to find a solution quickly. I was initially planning on using IKEA cube shelving and some hooks, but then I spotted these fantastic White Metal Lockers at Kmart for only $49.00.

I received lots of comments asking how I created it, how much it cost, and what products I used, so I put together this post to explain what I did to create my school station!

Before:

The plain wall had holes and markings all over it. Initially I was going to paint the wall, but I decided it was easier to hang up a $14.95 IKEA curtain to cover it.

I needed to find some cheap flooring to cover the concrete and to create a space for the kids to sit to put on their shoes. I purchased two fake grass panels from Bunnings for $10 each.

For final touches, I added the Kmart White Tall School Lockers, Kmart black wire baskets, Kmart stool and Kmart clothes rack for hats.

After:

The kids have put the station to good use over the first few weeks of school! I really don’t know how we managed the last few years without it.

Below is where you will find everything I used!

 

Do you have a school organisation station set up? I’d love to see it!
