STEPS(S):
  • Cut horizontally into the box for about 2/3 of the box
  • Take the mesh and measure over the opening and cut any excess
  • Tape the expose edges from the box. Make sure your tape covers both the inner and outer edges.
  • Tape the mesh into the box and make sure you are covering every single surface you cut into
  • Paint (this might take several coats
  • depending on your paint quality
  • and the glossy finish on the box.
  • One quick trick is to put tape in the entire box so you will be painting the
  • tape and not the box).
