Hanging out

This handy industrial moodboard makes for an easy Saturday afternoon project.

You will need
Reinforcing steel, available from Mitre 10 (ask them to cut the size down for you).
Resene GP Metal Primer
Resene Black in flat
Paint brush
3 small nails

1. This reinforcing steel usually comes a bit rusty, so brush it off before priming with Resene General Purpose Metal Primer.
2. Once the primer is dry, brush on a coat of Resene SpaceCote Flat in Resene Black for a flat powder-coated look, or a Resene Lustacryl for a more wipe-able surface.
3. Hang it up using three small nails; two at either end and one in the middle. And voilà! An industrial moodboard to clip up ideas for your next DIY project!
