I am a former educator who has been a stay at home Mom for the past 22 years. I love all things home and garden and enjoy making my home comfortable for my family. As a believer in Jesus Christ, I believe that our homes are our greatest mission fields. My goal is to encourage others to use their homes to promote the gospel of Christ just as Lydia did in Acts chapter 16 of the Bible.

Why on earth I ever agreed to allow the builder to put the electrical panel box on a very open wall in the basement family room I will never know. I guess that falls under the “pick your battles” category. Meanwhile, I am stuck with a very UGLY grey box at the bottom of the stairs. I’m talking a BIG ugly grey box. It is 40 inches tall!! Solution: get to the nearest flea market as soon as possible. Purchase an old shutter that is big enough to cover this monster. Use any leftover paint to paint your shutter. Print off signage from the computer and transfer it to the shutter. I used old fashioned carbon paper for my transfer. Paint the lettering then lightly sand with fine sandpaper.
Hang your new masterpiece.While this is certainly not “artist” material, it beats that UGLY grey box!
