Calling all band geeks! Be the coolest kid in band with locker decorations from Darice LockerLookz now available at Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores. Thanks to LockerLookz for providing the sensational locker decorations and sponsoring this post.
I may have mentioned it before but my husband is a high school band director. I was also a band geek myself in high school and then switched over to vocal music in college. Music runs deep in our family. Being in band is a great way to find a group to hang with in high school – especially when your high school is over 3,000 students like the one my husband teaches at. The kids really connect and the band becomes like a family to most of them. The band students also tend to spend most of their down time in the band room and use their band lockers as their permanent locker for the school year.
Band lockers are not known for being pretty. They are pretty boring. So I asked the band's drum major, who also happens to be our kids' favorite baby-sitter, if she'd like to bling out her locker with the LockerLookz locker decorations. Looks like just another boring locker, right?
Surprise! The LockerLookz we received had three different color schemes – pink, turquoise and black. They are all pretty much interchangeable and the drum major used them all. I just let her get to work on the locker and she surprised me by going with the triple threat. Of course, this locker is made for a rather large instrument so it's pretty roomy and had lots of area to decorate, too.
The LockerLookz are all magnetic. No tape or any other adhesive is required. The “wall paper” actually has cut outs to work around the lock mechanism in a traditional locker, but we left them intact for the band locker.
The flowers, pen holders, mirrors, and white boards are all magnetic so they are easy to move around.
My absolutely favorite LockerLookz – the hanging chandeliers! The drum major went crazy over these and I don't blame her. The lights even have a motion sensor so that they will turn on when the locker door opens.
The finishing touches were the shag rugs and the shelf. The drum major didn't want to dirty up her rugs with her marching shoes so those got tucked in to the back corners of the locker. Her score and white gloves (very important for a drum major!) were put up on the shelf – ready to go for band camp in August.
