We didn't know what we were going to do with the breaker box on the focal wall of our bedroom-to-be. Obviously, the builder had no sense of...well, anything when he built this house. I was resigning myself to having to look at this eyesore everyday I stepped into my bedroom. What should I do?
We started with the deep cleaning, then the drywall where ancient paneling had been, then cleaning, painting and replacing the old trim and doors. I wound up painting the electrical box's door the same color as the wall and that helped but I still was wondering what to do to disguise the box.
Here is result...
We had brought this door with us, the old back door of our last house. I had to plead my case for it and it had been our headboard in the last house so I decided it needed a place here, too. Now, to get access to the box you do have to move the door but even I can do that. Voila!
Moral of the story...
If you are having trouble finding solutions to your problems, if you are lonely, if you need a friend, if you don't have the strength to carry on...just look behind the door.
You'll have all the power you need.
Ask and it will be given to you;
seek and you will find;
knock and the door
will be opened to you.
