I CAN NOT DECIDE! whether to attach my mesh to build my bin with wire or screws :(

If I do you use screws, I'll be using a lot and I think it might make the bin look ugly...

I like using wire but my mom said it looks to plain. Posted Image

I think both are fine. The wire looks nice because it's very subtle and hard to notice, but the screws also look good because they look secure and 'finished'. If you really can't decide, just flip a coin ;D

to me the wire looks nice and neat! though it is a little plain, I don't think huge screws are the answer...

maybe you could decorate it after you've attached the wire?

You don't need huge screws for this my cage top was made out of metal mesh with small bolts and washers. The wires do make it look boring but then again I've seen people who have used wires and covered them up with colorful duct tape (on the outside only!)

Ah, I see, I'm sorry if I'm not much of a help here I can't really say what type of screws were used because I had mine done professionally; my grandfather and a family friend knew some people over at this small owned hardware store and they helped me out. :ashamed: I do apologize for not being able to help but I can give this type of advice you could always go to a hardware store and ask if they can help you out. :paperbag:

Personally I like the finished looks of the screws, but both are great so use whichever one! :D

I personally really like the look of it and it is VERY secure like that.

I like the wire, it's very elegant and subtle. It looks plain in a good way and very neat. :thumbsup:

I prefer screws, but if wire is too plain, you can put some border. I've seen some people use coloured/patterned duct tape, large picture frames and thin coloured plastic like the type from a plastic binder. But you'll have to use some sort of screws for a wooden/plastic border...

I know. :D

It looked nice and the most similar to how mine would turn out, just with a bunch more screws--So I used it. Hope you don't mind. ;)
