I love this room. But there are two things I don't love about it. I'll show you one of them.
That vent cover.
That's the intake vent for our furnace, and it sits right above the garbage can.
I just think it's an eyesore.
So last night, we changed it. And I do mean "we". (because "we" means he did it, and I came up with the idea. Whereas "I" means I did all of it. See how that works?)
I'd planned on doing it myself, but my husband jumped in and finished it in the time it took me to cook supper. No complaints here!
I just finished painting the frame, which is just plain old lattice.
The sheet metal is from Lowe's, and it was less than $20. I spray painted it gloss white so it would be easy to wipe clean.
Lattice is about .50 a linear foot and it's easy to work with. Just straight cuts. So it was a cheap and easy project, and I still have some sheet metal and lattice left over.
I don't care that the floor is just painted plywood. But the vent bothered me every time I went in that room. I found this on Pinterest.
Maybe that's why it bothered me.
Thanks for reading!
