Replacing Beaker Box Cover

Looking to replace the attached electrical box cover with one that covers the breakers. Is this possible? Can't find this type of box online via google or image search.

Do you mean a door ?

If your talking about a door...... the only place to find one would be eBay. Too old to get from manufacturer now.

Yes the door is the reason, plus the room was redone and this is like the only things in there that looks out of place.

Any issues with building a little wooden box that say swings away like a door?

Nope.... a home made door would be fine.

You could just hang a picture frame to hide. That would be a simplest solution.

From a quick google search I found some people are actually making a door with picture frame by attaching hinges to to.

A cabinet door may be good too, but might look a bit out of place depending on the location of your breaker.

You can be very creative with it.
