Operation: Electric Panel

Submitted by loniwolfe on Wed, 07/13/2011 - 10:43

It's an awful eye sore builder's always seem to put in the most obvious places even when there's an attached garage, or a basement, or even a large closet somewhere.

Solution: Build a frame out of 2x2's around the panel. Build a smaller frame out of trim (or whatever you like as a picture frame). Attach the smaller frame to the frame on the wall with self closing hinges (ok, maybe paint everything first, lol) and insert a photo or painting of your choice.

Unfortunately you can't do anything about placement, hello 1 inch from my countertop and cabinets (also preventing me from building more upper cabinets on that wall)
But, it's better than staring at that ugly gray box :)

Estimated Cost
Less than $20
Estimated Time Investment
An Hour or Two (0-2 Hours)
Type of Wood
cheap. lol
Finish Used
white gloss paint (same paint as the window trim) But you could stain it to really look like a picture haning on the wall
Recommended Skill Level
Starter Project

Yes, It's tough if we have an issue in the electric panel that is often fixed in a case. It has complicated wiring inside that controls our whole house. So, It's better to look for a professional licensed electrician erie pa. They are providing experienced electricians to residential as well as commercial areas.
