A lot like Love.

Chicken Wire Cabinet Doors – This idea can go in a lot of different directions. Of course, if you can find a wire or metal that is thicker that chicken wire, you’ve got even more possible looks. I absolutely adore this look here:

Chances are, chicken wire is as thick as it gets. I’ve done a touch of research, and most of the grilles and metal caging material available is custom or from overseas. Completely impractical.

So chicken wire from Lowe’s, Home Depot or online will do. You can look around a bit. Sometimes the shapes differ. Its really simple to do. You need wire cutters and a staple gun. I would personally finish with some burlap and glue gun as well to cover the rough edges. Measure the open area you are going to cover and add several inches all around to work with. Start with one edge and staple. Making sure to pull tightly, secure at the the bottom and staple. Work the 4 corners first, making sure to keep it taut and even. Then staple along the edges, pulling to keep it tight. One stapled, trim the excess. At this point, you could cover the wire ends with burlap strips and a glue gun, but that is optional.Here are some finished examples:
