Growing up, what I looked forward to the most each school year was how I was deciding how I was going to decorate my locker. Your locker is one way to show the rest of your classmates your personality through your decorations. Along with your locker looking its best, it also needs to be functional! Even if you are not wearing your best outfit that day, your locker with be looking perfect with these helpful design and storage tips.
