~Paris in a Box~

I love this paper my sister Charmaine gave me for my birthday. Anything to do with Paris, love it!
I have been wanting to hide our security system box forever.
Then I remembered the Paris paper and I thought how could I use it.
I measured the area and found the bottom of a cardboard box with almost the same dimensions at Michael's. For just $3.00.
I just had to cut down the depth.

I glued down the paper with Mod Podge.
Added a couple of nails to the wall.
And then the magic happened!
Great idea to hide that ugly box and now
 I get to see Paris instead!

    1. Olive, I'm sure it wasn't a woman who designed where it should go. If it was up to us, it would be in a closet out of sight! Thanks for your comment.

  13. That is so good, We have a huge box over ours from when it had the old electrical wiring, but when we rewired we never removed it. I think this is a great idea,I might make a feature of it by covering it. At the moment it's just painted.
