These different aluminum sheets are found both at Home Depot and Lowes as well as other hardware stores. For some reason, maybe because everything I love gets discontinued, they no long have the design I wanted in the finish I needed.
I love the gold finish and even the design of the clover leaf looking one below, but my client liked the style of the piece with smaller holes, and I did as well for this project. But it was only in a dark shade and needed to be spray painted. That, I can do:)
I sprayed it in Rustoleum Pure Gold, which is an excellent soft gold without too much orange or brass.
I then attached it to a board I cut down to be inserted into the space where the speaker fabric once was.
Attached from the inside of the cabinet.
New back applied after I sprayed the area that would be exposed when the flap door was down.
Here she is! All done and prettied up! This will make an excellent and cool nightstand.
