Hanging Food Safe (Part 2)

Remember how I wasn't happy with the look of our solar inverter on the side of my shed and how I made a hanging food safe to cover it. And then I wasn't happy with how transparent the fly screen was. It just didn't disguise the inverter enough. Well, over Easter, I actually got around to replacing the mesh in the sides and door and am very pleased with the result.

This is what it looked like at first with just the fly screen.

Doesn't hide the solar inverter much at all.

And this is how it looks now. So much better! You can see just enough of the inverter through the mesh to know what is inside without it staring you right in the face.

I managed to source some perforated steel mesh from a company called "Goods and Chattels". They have been around for many years but no longer work from a shop. The business is now conducted mainly as an online store but you can pick your order up from the owner's home if you wish. Have a look at their website. They have a comprehensive range of products aimed at the furniture restorer.
The mesh wasn't dirt cheap but not too expensive either. And I had it cut exactly to the sizes that I needed for no extra charge. Very happy with the service and product.

I think the inverter cover project has turned out rather well and even looks so much better with the new mesh in place. Let me know what you think.
