Breaker Box Cover
Materials: Nexus birch door
Description: When we bought the condo, there was an ugly assortment of items mounted on the wall near the front door (breaker box, security system pad and hardware box). These could not be moved. So, to cover them up I installed 1″ x 4″ fir boards vertically on each side of the mess using “L” brackets to create a side of a cabinet. Then, I mounted Nexus birch doors to the wood sides to cover it all up. I made sure the sides were well mounted to studs in the wall. It did not take long and matches the kitchen cabinets on the other side of the room. It was a simple solution to a very ugly problem.
