Braden/ Fuse Box Cover
Last Wed. my youngest
grandson came to spend the
afternoon with me. Even though
I was feeling bad I wanted to
give him a good time.
We messed around on the
deck most of the time, it was
one of those not so hot days.
But a popsicle is good just the
Braden was the first one to

A couple weeks ago when
DJ came to spend the afternoon
with me, Lily went wild.
She ran around and showed off.
With Braden she jumped up to
spend time with him.
That is unusual for her. She
apparently likes kids.
But this is what happens when you

Many years ago my oldest brother called
and asked me if I would paint
something on his
on his fuse box door.
Keep in mind my brother lived in
an 11 thousand sq. foot home.
YES - you read that correctly.
The washroom used to be
a bathroom. Before being added
onto used to be a community pool.
So there was a his and hers bathroom
side by side. One like I said was turned
into a washroom so it was pretty
good size. I could not get Ray to
tell me what he wanted on the cover
so I just went with it and this
is what he got.
They ended up painting the room around
the peachy orange like color in the
flowers. And with that each time
someone new came to visit and they
did a tour of the house I could
here Lori proudly tell them that
I painted that for them.
When they moved to the other
house, they replaced the cover, taking
this one with them and hanging
this in their bedroom.
My fuse box has hung in the
hall going from the living room
to the kitchen, right out in the open
for the 26 years I have been here.
I always just kept it covered
with a picture or
a mirror. But last week I
just decided it was time to change
that. So here is what I came
If you can tell, the door itself is
the actual part that opens to the
fuses and the house frame is
the space around it.
I am debating on to frame
it or not.
Difference between the two.
Ray's was done with oils and
mine with acrylic paints.
Hence the shine on his. However
I plan on getting in there today
while the furbabes are on the deck
and spray a sealer on mine which will
help with the shine.
Which is your fave?
