This was not the hardest of upcycle projects so this post is rather short. We simply cleaned up and painted the grate. We then attached it with some spacers so it was not completely flat against the wall but it is secure. This does not move or swing or even wiggle. We then took some heavy gauge copper wire and turned it into hooks.
From these hooks we can hang most of out utensils and of course a braid of garlic from the garden.
