DIY: Covering Up The Water Heater

011309water-02.jpgOver on our Apartment Therapy LA Flickr Group, Sew Darn Jenny's kitchen is undergoing a revamp (more on that soon)! In the meantime, she wanted to tackle covering up the eyesore of the room--the water heater.

Jenny tells us that she's always wanted to cover up her water heater and didn't have a solution until her friend offered a spare folding screen. She DIY'd the screen to make it her own by spray painting the panels white and then glued vintage wall paper using Mod Podge.

  • We've also heard of folks using a set of tall windows hinged together and frosting the panes of glass to block out the water heater.
  • You could also use a tall peg board that could double as storage for kitchen utensils or small pieces of artwork.
  • Make a found screen your own by attaching a cafe rod and decorative fabric.

Anyone else have a crafty way to cover up the water heater?
