I originally came up with this idea in my freshman year of college to display pictures. In the dorms we were not allowed to put holes in the walls, so I instead stapled some wire mesh behind an old ladder that we had sitting around. The picture ladder was perfect for us because we could just rearrange our pictures whenever we wanted by moving the magnets. While in the dorm we also made an earring holder that hung over the door with the extra wire mesh (we ended up hating the over the door aspect because every time we shut the door earrings would fall..so save yourself the time and don't try that idea).
Realizing the many things that we were able to do with the wire mesh, I decided that I should reincarnate it once more. This time I went to Home Depot and let myself go crazy finding all sorts of goodies to pimp it out to its full potential.
The new and improved floating multi-use wall storage is a great addition to any room of yours, or any friend's home. It makes a particularly good gift because it can be used in so many different ways. If your friend is a crafty individual, it could easily be used to store his or her craft supplies. Use it to display pictures and memories, or even to showcase products for retail stores--the possibilities are endless! And, best of all, you can constantly rearrange and recreate it with minimal effort!
