Clever, quirky, and practical, with a healthy dose of retro-chic. I like it!

Well done, and thanks for sharing your handiwork, irishrose.

Snowdaisy - I got the wire mesh at Woodies. It's supposed to be used for making pet cages. They sell it in 3x2 metre pieces, I think. The paint is just wall paint with a coat of water-based varnish over it. I sanded the piece pretty well and tacked it off, then just painted it with a decent-quality brush. It's been a while now and the paint is holding up fine.

I love what you have done with this, very clever. I'm just wondering, how did you cut out the hole for the wire mesh?
