Getting Ready for Summer

We are Summer people.

We love to be outside.

We love swimming in the pool. Morning, noon or night……it doesn’t matter.

We enjoy warm summer nights playing games around the table for 12.

This cold weather is NOT the favorite and while I enjoy sitting around the fire on a cool evening, I’m preparing for summer in January.

We have a pool house. It is the holder of all things. It allows for restroom breaks and a nice shower after a long day of swimming and play.

We invite people to hang with us but even when it’s just “us” we have 7 (sometimes 8) adults and 3 small children.

That’s a lot of towels, swimsuits, sunscreen, hats, baby stuff, etc.

It got out of control last year.

It all needs a space and I had the perfect thing.

These lockers have been in the hoard for YEARS. They had a broken leg, some of the openers didn’t work, they were filthy gross dirty and I had ignored them forever.

Yes, they are upside down to repair the broken leg

Me: “Steve, will you help me get the lockers out and fix the leg for me?

They made it to the garage

The leg was repaired

I had planned on sucking it up and buying spray paint for the outside because I DID NOT want to hand paint all the grooves, vents, frames, etc. and I haven’t invested in a sprayer yet. Spray paint is $5 minimum a can and I expected to need at least 10 cans. Who knew there was a shortage on black satin spray paint. I went to 3 different stores and found none.

I did however find a can of Satin enamel paint for $12 and I ended up painting by hand anyways. It wasn’t so bad and LOOK

The lockers fit perfectly in the pool house. It’s like they were meant to go there.

Each locker is so tall and I wanted to utilize the space to its best potential. I searched online and found locker shelves for $10-$20 each.

No way.

I went searching in the wood pike for scraps to build shelves to cut each locker in half. Now each locker holds items for 2 people and I even have lockers to spare after I filled one with baby hats, diapers and wipes and one with sunscreens and soaps and lotions for the shower.

I really don’t know if I ever shared the pool house so I took a couple of pictures for reference

The lockers sit immediately in front of the shower
This is the toilet room

Ok Summer, we are ready for you
