Thanks lbrown, you just gave me an idea. We are painting our entire upstairs and hate those industrial looking air return vents. This would be a great replacement for them. Thanks for the inspiration.

I like the idea of having to be with the one which is going to be done in many ways. I wish that we all can do the same mistakes in by hands we all do the same things as well. amazing
