An Easy and Cheap Outdoor Update

Over the weekend, we painted our meter to match our siding. It was very easy and cheap and something I could complete start to finish very easily! Check out my blog if you want to read about the fun.

    you are so right, it looks very nice. we did the same thing after our meter glass was broken while the house was getting sided. The new glass looked so pretty and clean. we used spray paint however for ours. Had slipped cardboard between the neter, pole, wires and the house .

    I think meters are the property of the utility company. Is painting them technically allowed? I just tried to look this up to no avail.

    Actually I believe that the power company owns the meter - not the box. (from my days as a csr for CL&P)

    I don't know Steve, we just asked the guy that came out to fix the meter.

    Jan, that makes sense. Thanks for the clarification. Dee, if it was OK with him, that's good enough for me.
