Radiator screen wall organizer: Functional DIY office decor

by Renee Waymire 05/09/2022

For simple and stylish DIY office decor, consider repurposing a radiator screen. Metal radiator screens come in a variety of metals, finishes and designs, making them a great option for a wall organizer. Here is a quick guide to making your own office wall organizer out of a radiator screen:

What you'll need

  • Radiator screen (either thrifted or from a home improvement store)
  • Grommets
  • Screws
  • Push pins
  • Fiberboard
  • Sawtooth hanger
  • Metal basket (optional)
  • Large hooks (optional)

Step by step

  1. First, cut your fiberboard to the size of the radiator screen.
  2. Attach the screen to the fiberboard using screws and grommets (amount needed will depend on the weight of the screen).
  3. Once the screen is securely attached to the fiberboard, you can attach the optional components. Secure the metal basket to the screen for holding mail, magazines and other items. Use screw-in hooks to hang keys and decorative objects.
  4. Mount the screen on the wall using a Sawtooth hanger.
  5. Use push pins to attach notes, important reminders, calendars, phone numbers and more.

Ideas for use

If you're not certain how or where to place your new radiator screen wall organizer, consider how you want to use it. For example, if you made the organizer to be purely decorative, use it to display photos, art and other inspiring elements.

If you want to use the organizer to keep important notes and information close by, mount it on the wall next to your desk, so it's always within reach. You'll be able to access reminders, instructions and schedules easily and enjoy a unique piece of DIY office decor.
