I’m almost always a little afraid when from the other room I get one of those “Honey, I have a project for youuuuu….” honey-sweet calls from Mr D.
(In all fairness, I did this to him this week also when I pounced on the bed whilst he was sleeping and announced I had a project I wanted him to do because I found free plans on the Internet. He was less an impressed.)
Turns out this was a really fast & simple project.
We actually traded circuit breaker boxes with my dad when we moved into the Hobo-Chic project as our current panel was too small (and illegal). My dad got a new panel & took our old one to use as a pony panel for his garage, as my brother recently had started using a welder out there and it was blowing the entire house every time he turned it on.
My dad, had all the breakers labelled, however, with our new set-up we need to make some changes to double breakers, etc, and ended up with a wonky numbering system.
The small project was to create an organized label system as the current one was bothering D, and I think he was also tired of getting phone calls from me in our impromptu kitchen saying “so, I blew the kitchen breaker again – which number is it?”
Enter my brilliant solution, using a page of label paper, and an Excel spreadsheet.
I measured out the width, length and depth of each of the slots, and then created a little document with the numbers in it with the groovy free font Bebas.
