Hiding consumer unit/meter


Postby foreverchanges » Sun Jul 15, 2012 12:41 pm

I want to hide whats in the pic with something I can paint and easily lift off. At the moment its mostly hidden from the front by a bookcase but from the side you can still see how ugly it is. I want to keep the bookcase in roughly same place so dont want anything that protrudes into room much beyond the consumer unit. Please keep it simple - I'm not v practical and I dont know any diy shorthand so if you start using expressions like 2 x 1 I wont have a clue what youre talking about

Hiya,the easiest solution would be to make sides and a top the same width as between the wall and the bookcase,this could be then fixed to the wall and to get to the consumer unit you just pull the bookcase forward.
Where abouts are you as someone on here might be close and able to do it for you or look for a local handyman,not a big job at all.
