Well, if you have a 16 x 20 room you can hang them from the ceiling and paint them so they will either blend in, stand out or compliment your ceiling color. I'm sure they don't weigh that much.
Not a bad idea, although i just spent a month cleaning and painting the inside of my new house
So covering up my awesome paint job with lattices isn't really part of the plan, though for people whose tastes run that way, it's a great idea!
My tastes run halfway between Asian/Minimalist/Zen and Eclectic. White is not part of the picture, nor is a garden style lattice.
However, you do make me realise that my unfinished and rather dark and dank basement might be improved with the lattices as well. If i stick with my plan of making them into movable outdoor room dividers, there is no reason why i can't use them downstairs in order to make the basement into smaller areas. So i'm definitely shortlisting your suggestion. If Craftster had a posrep system i'd be repping you right now
these can also be great for renters who can't or don't feel comfortable putting too many holes in their walls.
Clean the lattice, leave as is or paint it to a desired color. You can then use it propped up against a wall as a pot rack, utencil/towel/gadget holder. You could also us it to hang photos/posters/artwork on. Screw hooks into it and us it to organize a craft room, hang coffee/tea cups from, use it to hang your calendar on and then decorate with things done, like postcards from galleries/museums visited, ticket stubs, postcards, photos, kids drawings, etc.
While for me, a homeowner, these won't work, for a renter they are in fact great ideas. You also deserve posrep
And since i don't have the wall space to use these inside as organizers, you also make me realise that until i can afford a shed, they would make a decent garden tool organizer. If one of the outdoor room dividers is vertical and not horizontal, just hang hooks or flowerpots from it to store my outdoor tools. And it'll be movable so as i rip up more and more of the ugly blacktop i won't have to worry about dismantling and reassembling.
Still looking for ways i can use these outside, since the inside of my house is A) Freshly painted and not in need of white vinyl and B) too small for giant art installations. Anybody else?
