Shoe tray for mud room lockers

ajc9June 5, 2012

Hello all!

My lockers in my mudroom are white...they are about 8 months old and I really need to put a boot/shoe tray on the bottom of it...it's pretty scuffed up and cruddy looking already!

Any suggestions of where to purchase? It's about 4 feet long by 2 1/2 feet deep in the center part and on each side of that there are two smaller sections about 1 foot wide. Sort of an odd configuration so im not sure how to organize it.

I wish I had a picture! Anyway, I should explain that the tile doesn't extend underneath the lockers like I wish it would...it's boxed in with white painted wood as is the bench above..if that makes sense! Just need something to line it and tidy it up...

You might consider finding a sheet-metal shop and asking how much they'd charge to make you something just the right size.

Either metal, or maybe powder-coated or painted white.

Talley_sue....great idea! I like the idea of a powder coat...wouldn't show as much. Ugh...I don't know what we were thinking...I sure wish the tile just extended underneath...!

Since you have different sizes of cubbies, my first thought was the ribbed shelf liner. It's quite thick and would be plenty durable enough. I can't remember where I got mine it's been so long ago, but my guess is either HoDe or Wally World.
I found some online linked below...

You might try Gardener's Supply at www.gardeners.com. Search on 'boot tray.' They have several sizes available. We have used these trays in several places for a number of years. They are heavy and easy to take outside and rinse, when needed.

The clear ribbed shelf liner is a great idea--low cost, as well.

You also could simply tile the spaces, w/ ceramic tile, vinyl stick-on tiles, or maybe even w/ vinyl sheet flooring cut to fit. You could match the floor, or you could use something different.

You can also get Plexiglas or Lucite cut to fit, in white (or other color--maybe gray would be smart) or clear.
