Once you've figured out where you want your mesh grid to hang, raise it to the wall and mark the centre of the first square with a pencil – this is where your hooks will go. Do the same on the other side.
Grab a tape measure and measure how wide your grid is – that's how it will be spaced on the wall.
The picture hooks we've found at our local Bunnings are perfect as they hold up to 4kg of weight without having to find wall studs. Simply hammer the nail through the hook into the wall – simple!
And you're good to go! Once your grid is in place, use ‘S Hooks' to attach storage baskets and anything you'd like to hang. Dress your grid with a selection of your favourite photos, pegged into place.
Using a mesh grid as vertical storage is not only practical but looks great too – and can be used in any room of the house for photos or as a memo board. So simple and stylish – and all created in under 10 minutes!
Asbestos, lead-based paints and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber are health hazards you need to look out for when renovating older homes. These substances can easily be disturbed when renovating and exposure to them can cause a range of life-threatening diseases and conditions including cancer. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer or visit our Health & Safety page.
