Hiding an Attic Access Panel

Our over 200 year old home has a square opening in the attic that was obvious. I changed it into a skylight with paint!

Approximate Time: 10 minutes

Supplies:

  • blue cardboard the same size as your attic opening
  • white tempera paint
  • optional: clear plexiglass the size of attic opening

Instructions:

  1. I just cut my blue posterboard to slightly smaller than my attic opening>
  2. Then I quickly swirled some white paint (in a circular motion) onto my blue posterboard.
  3. When it dried I just popped it into the framed attic spot.
  4. You could add a piece of Plexiglas to help replicate a window (and even use white tape found in craft stores) to replicate panes of glass frame), but I just use it without either and envision that I now have a skylight! :)

I think it looks whimsical and pretty! What do you think?
