Hide An Ugly Alarm Panel with a Cute Canvas

There’s an ugly alarm panel in the bedroom in our new home. It was driving me nuts having to look at it every day, so I decided to find a way to hide it, but leave it fully functional.

The Valentine’s day gift I made for Kevin this year came to the rescue. It’s an inexpensive canvas, with dozens of “I love you”s Mod Podged to the surface.

Since the alarm panel was mounted perfectly level, all I had to do was place the canvas atop it. Voila! No more ugly alarm panel.

NOTE: This project was inspired by a pin I found on Pinterest. The original called for adding a hinge to the canvas, but there was no need in my case. The alarm panel was at eye level.
