Is that a chandelier in that locker? Why, yes it it is. When my boss, Marnie Mead, told me her daughter, Nicole Oberle, had a chandelier in her locker, I was thinking she went to school with Harry Potter.
But no. Magnets, mirrors, wallpaper, mini chandeliers and assorted accents adorn as many lockers as homes. Preteens have taken interior design way inside the school and into their lockers … and outside the locker at some schools.
The video at left is from ABC-TV’s Lara Spencer in 2011. She did the video after she read a story in the New York Times about how lockers have become a vehicle for self expression for middle schoolers.
