well we have an ugly breaker box in our laundry room, i've been gathering materials from all around to make a cover for the breaker box..and today while my hubby was asleep i hot glued them all together..I had a metal picture of a little girl washing her dolls, some fabric and batting, some bits of lace and cord from an online friend in Idaho, so I hot glued the batting and fabric over a foam core board, then hot glued on the picture and the lace, put buttons hot glued on magnets and thumb tacks on and even glued on some clip clothespins and an old button doll..

salvaged all the stuff and made me a cover to go over the breaker box..just barely long enough to hide it..used magnets but it was too heavy so I ended up putting a nail through the lace at the top to secure it from sliding down..now just pull it off quickly to get to the breakers..and it matches my washer and dryer..



messages or whatever can go on the clothespins, magnets or push pins..

Hmm, I am not sure that would be to code.  I am honestly not sure you are suppose to cover the box with flammable materials  but that said, wow, nicest electrical panel ever! Now you have me thinking .

Is Michelle Obama very cross with barack, she came over here to Spain on his birthday? I am not suprised if she is cross, in the old days he must ahve been very busy getting into the political in crowd, she must have been very lonely often. It makes me laugh that she is punishing Obama though i like him. I wonder what he has done now they are living in the same house and he is not always away. agri rose macaskie
