Does you have an electric fuse box or electrical panel in an odd place at your home? Maybe it’s in the living room, kitchen, or hallway. You know, right for every one to see!
Our fuse box is in the hallway and is visible from the kitchen, dining room, and entrance.
For the past year I have been trying to figure out how to cover the fuse box up while still keeping it easily accessible (my husband’s only request) and decorative.
I came up with an inexpensive solution!
Here’s How I Covered the Electrical Fuse Box:
1. I bought 2 foam poster boards from Dollar Tree and taped them together using packaging tape.
The poster boards were the perfect size for my electrical panel, but I know some panels are much longer than mine.
You may have to cut and tape additional boards together.
2. Next, I stapled fabric to the back of the boards. This fabric was left over from a previous project. It has a similar look to burlap, but much smoother, and it was cheaper than burlap because I found it on clearance at JoAnn’s Fabric Store.
3. To hold the poster board to the fuse box, I hot glued magnets to the back.
It works great because it can easily be taken off the panel. No nails, hooks, or screwdrivers needed!
4. Then I shopped my house to decorate the boards. My coffee filter wreath seemed to be just right for the top.
