I made a set of those radiator covers last fall…they work great. Yours came out looking fantastic. Well done on the space.

Did you do the grating for that radiator cover yourself?

Smart work.

I purchased two radiator covers very similar to the one displayed, but in an unfinished state

I did NOT enjoy wiggling a brush inside approximately 800 holes when painting the gratings!

About ten years ago, I restored a huge farmhouse that had 15 radiators. Over time I built covers for all of them, and they look a LOT like these!! I didn’t paint the metal grating, left it gold colored. Surprisingly, they don’t restrict the heat, but I left mine short enough so that the little bleeder valve stuck out one end so I didn’t have to take off the cover every time I bled off the air.

Ah I was wondering what that was in the first picture, that’s something we don’t see down here in Texas. :) nor do we have basements, After reading some comments I found out what that was.
