My son tore out the kitchen cabinets that were built around the breaker box. Now we need a way tp make it blend in instead of standing out. Any ideas?

    I would hang a corkboard, chalkboard, whiteboard or kitchen-themed poster over the box using Velcro or command hooks. A poster with substitutions and measurement conversions would be handy.

    Maybe use the framework of something like a bathroom cabinet over it, but leave off the back of it off. That way, you could open the door to get to the box. (Using the front as a chalkboard, etc, like the previous person mentioned would be a plus too!) Good luck!!

    Frame it in and put on a wooden door.

    I'm thinking either wood slats like pieced of laminate flooring glued onto a cardboard box. a little bigger than the breaker box. The flaps on the box could be opened if needed and you could attach 2 light weight knobs to the wood strip for opening/closing. I'd attach it by gluing pieces of 2x4 on the sides that would make it as wide as the box and glue box to them. Paint or decorate if wanted.
