A few flea market raids into your weekend, and you’ve acquired a solid set of working speakers! The only downside? Their grill cloths are lookin’ a little dingy — what to do, what to do. We’ve whipped up a way easy DIY that will take those beat blasters from ‘blargh’ to ‘bad’ — in the M.J. way.
Other tips to keep in mind when crafting:
- I used a lightweight fabric with just a tad of sheen. Note the lighter the fabric, the more taut you’ll want to keep it when stretching so the surface doesn’t ripple when you blast bass. Medium-weight fabrics equivalent to that of what you found on the speakers originally are ideal.
- You can also use multipurpose fabric- or wood-glues depending on how permanent you want it to be. I like change, so I opted for the more temporary option–a sturdy double-sided tape.
