Hey there! We’ve been working on our basement, laundry room, on and off, for five weeks. I have a few gallons of paint to go on all the pipes and duct work, sconces to be hung, and a bit of this and a bit of that, left. The latest addition is a super inexpensive and easy gridwall display.
I bought $6 hardware mesh, used for fencing at Home Depot. I unrolled it. Then rolled it up in the opposite direction, to straighten it out.
I gave it a quick spray with some black spray paint, I had on hand. I wanted it to give a graphic affect against the white walls.
I used five command hooks across the center of the wire mesh to mount. Clothespins secure the thrifted, Paris, tourist map and artwork from my grandpa’s sketch book.
Our basement is out of a horror movie; I’ve come to call it the Pit of Despair. Recently, a hot water pipe from Everett’s bathroom sprung a leak, flooding the storage area and setting a budget makeover into motion. Among the improvements, including waterproofing, I prettied up the existing built in cabinet.
