No, it's not just some randomly centered wall decor. It's a fuse box cover! Why fuse boxes can't all be put in a closet or garage or somewhere out of view I will never understand. But anyway, this was my solution to hiding an ugly fuse box: stretched canvas (bought 60% off at Michaels), covered with fabric I already had (it's excess backing for the quilt I made for our bed seen here), hung semi permanently so it can easily be taken down to access the fuse box. Definitely worth the $17.99 stretched canvas cost to hide that eyesore from view!
Here's the before and after:
I should also point out the giant Hemnes mirror on the slanted wall. We used to have a silly, college-style mirror covering the fuse box, but I was dying to buy this Hemnes mirror from Ikea. It makes a lot more sense to have a mirror on the slanted wall because otherwise I was always having to close our bedroom door to check out my outfits in the morning. I'm definitely enjoying this configuration MUCH better. Oh yes, I should also mention I randomly got on Craigslist one day and found the Hemnes mirror for sale. I spent half the price and saved myself the 4-hour roundtrip to Ikea...huge win for our bedroom and the pocketbook! Always look on Craiglist for home furnishings before you make the trip and buy something new, you might find just what you were looking for!
So how do you hide your fuse boxes and have you ever found exactly what you were looking for on Craigslist?
