building a tack locker!

Hey guys I'm going to start building my own tack locker. Well its more like a closet really. It's going to be 5 ft tall, by 4 ft wide, by 3 ft deep. I'm not sure what to incorporate on the inside. I know I want a few shelves. Any ideas? Post pictures of your tack lockers so we can compare. Thanks!

Bridle hooks, saddle stand, cubbies to put things like boots and polos, a place to put drawers s you can stash vet wraps and stuff.. an area to put an emergency vet kit that you can easily pull out.

My suggestion for paint....find two good colors that go well together, and have a color for trim and a color for base. Or you could just stain it. I also might put wheels on it to make it a little eaiser to move? You can always get wheels with little locks on the so it wont roll away hehe, also make sure you water proof it or a seal or somthing you never know when it might be out in the elments since this is somthing you could potentailly move with you places. Also for the saddle stand maybe cut a cold peice of carpet and cover it? Looks better and wont scratch up any tack.

Hope this helped!!

Oh wow that's so nice looking! Hopefully I can get mine to look that good :) Do yall think that if I made the frame real sturdy it could support a western saddle?

Google horse tack locker and you can see lots of images of western saddle tack lockers - I ride western so would probably change the saddle part to hold a western saddle

Yeah I see a lot of people using 2x4's as a base to attach thier western saddle racks. Den do you happen to know the dimensions of that tack locker? It's a really nice size.
