Step by step directions using a old frame and hardware to conceal a protruding object on the wall. (We converted part of our garage into a office/mudroom so we decided to hide the garage door opener since we don't use it)
  • When you hit the crystal knob the black thing in the back pushes on the garage door opener!
  • Find a old frame
  • Built the back of the frame out with scrap wood
  • Add a hindge
  • Spraypaint
  • Voila!

    Love this Kristin!!! I've been trying to think of a way to hide the drain knobs in the wall behind my washing machine. I think you've helped me find a solution. Perfect!

    might try this for our breaker box as we need to hide it since we enlarged a laundry room

    Love this idea! Actually, I have that exact frame (I worked for CBK as a sales rep)! Will definitely have to try this out!

    Great idea to make the ugly beautiful, had a friend on FB say they were doing their thermostat, just wanted to point out it would hurt and not help. Also, take care when covering any electronic devices - most all give off some heat and need to breathe -
