In this particular case, I built a window seat in our office wanted a built in bench to "look" like it was an old radiator that I had built a box around.
Bad picture, I know, but you get the idea.
Although a built-in is a great and classic place to use these screens, I have gotten pretty creative with the left overs…
Replace the panel of a door on a cabinet
I have used them to cover in wall speakers in 2 homes and here, in our current home's retro Nutone.
Check out the nasty before picture of the original fabric!
I must have REALLY been bored this particular day.... I created a magazine holder out of the extra metal screen to make a magazine holder for the 1/2 bath of out current house.
Wish I knew I would be starting a blog a year ago! Not sure how to tell you how I did this one, but with a little creativity and an hour of nothing better to do, I came up with this!
I always keep the left overs and make little things here and there...so I though I would share a few simple ideas.
Although the diameter is a bit different, the construction is basically the same...
1-cut the screen to length and width
2-with a small pieces of wire, pull through holes and twist to secure.
Just make sure the diameter fits what you want to use it for. For example, I cut a water bottle down to fit inside this one to hold the pencils
