Question

build plain cabinet door


built a small 'cabinet' around our electrical box - it's in the living area of a finished section of basement. the original camoflauge was a bookcase and a piece of 70's paneling that completely covered it needless to say that's gone and now we have a small frame around it that I want to put a cabinet door on painted same color as wall so it's not an attraction

anyone ever do this? thought about ordering some but in true DIY i hate to order something i could probably do since it doesn't have to be anything special - just open and close!

if it were me, i'd probably build a hinged picture frame.... that'd hide it pretty well.
i'd just find a painting or poster around that size....

thought about that - but location of it would look goofy to have a picture on the wall, kind of off to the side of the entry from the stairway

next idea could be go to your local 'Habitat for Humanity ReStore and see what they have cheap for cabinet doors.
You'll likely find better quality used than the 'new' cardboard crap they sell at the BB stores.
