The black looks much better than the bling. Why do you cut it into pieces, couldn't it be done in one piece?

mister ed 10-13-2007 08:39 PM

its mesh for gutters. just bought 4 pieces at $1.50 each...i think they were 6 inches by 36 inches. just cut them in half and trim with some tin snips to get to the right size.

thought about going with some hardware cloth but i wanted the diamond look and the hardware cloth is 1/4 inch squares.

I can't believe I got volunteered for something else.:D It will be a while due to us moving out of the city and back to the country, but when we get settled I will sit down and figure out a way to do it.
