Curious Case of Metal Grid

metal grid moodboard4

What was the most creative thing you ever did with a piece of grid metal? Mine was using a refrigerator shelf as a drying rack by placing it over a radiator and securing it with big ass books (just moved to Italy, didn’t know any stores nearby and was a student) and I must add that I was pretty proud of my invention. Granted it wasn’t grid but it still counts. Now I realise that I could have used it as a moodboard or a kitchen rack for spoons and ladles and stuff, would have been much cooler. Never too late for anything but I just don’t know where to get these kind of metal grids (I don’t want to deal with a hard DIY). Any ideas?

  1. At first when I saw the metal grid at the Container Store, I wasn’t impressed by it. Those pictures are quite convincing though, especially the one with the shoes. That is creative!

        I just love those grids, I saw them months ago & I also coundn’t found them so I dropped this idea.. Too bad.. 😀

      That’s what i immediately thought when i saw the photo! 😀

  2. My husband owns a bike shop and uses grid wall all the time for displays. Gris wall is made out of heavy chrome plated metal and comes in really large pieces that can be cut down. I believe he purchases it at a store that sells display pieces (mostly used) to other businesses. I’d search for used business display, grid wall in your area. Good luck!
