Design the wire mesh as you Like

Design your project
Make the most of your project by doing some planning and research in the early stages. This will help you determine the best materials for your project. For example, galvanized steel, stainless steel and brass all have different properties. You need to make sure you are using the right product for the project; for example, a grid installed on the wall of a house does not need to be as strong as a pet fence used for exposure to the elements.

Cutting your mesh
Pay close attention to the gauge of the braided or welded wire and choose the right tool for the job. If it is thin enough, you will be able to easily cut it into shape or trim it down using tin snips. If available, you can also use wire cutters or pneumatic scissors to make the cuts. For heavier gauge, the best tool for cutting wire mesh is the trusty angle grinder.

Repairing your wire mesh
Keep in mind that there are multiple ways to fix your mesh in place, and the method that works best for you will depend on the type of project, the gauge of the mesh, and the material it will be fixed to. Your preferences, skills, and the tools you have on hand may also influence your decision.

Painting your wire mesh
Remember, the most time consuming part of painting your wire mesh is the preparation. Make sure the surface is clean and rust-free before applying the primer. To cover all bases, it is best to use a corrosion-resistant primer to keep the metal sealed to the elements. From there, it's just a matter of either spraying or brushing the paint. It is best to use an acrylic latex paint as it is ideal for painting metal and is more durable than other types of paint. As an alternative to "wet" painting, for a really high-quality finish, you might also consider using powder coatings.

In conclusion
Wire mesh is an extremely versatile material that can be used for many small jobs around the home and at work jobs. If you have some basic tools and DIY skills, it is easy to use and can provide you with beautiful and durable results. For best results, remember to be careful, plan ahead, use proper safety gear, and don't attempt any project you don't have the tools or skills for.
