DIY Step Image - How to install a mesh grid. Blob storage upload.

Overview

Create valuable vertical storage and spruce up a blank piece of wall by installing a do-it-yourself mesh grid. They look great and they're SO simple to make.

Steps

1Decide where to install it

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.

2Measure up

Grab a tape measure and measure how wide your grid is – that's how it will be spaced on the wall.

3Make sure it's level

 No one likes a wonky grid – grab a spirit level and line it up between your markings. When the bubbles are in the centre, you're good to go.

4Hang your wall hooks

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!

5Hang your mesh grid

 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.
