comment What is permissible for a breaker box cover?
I would be very wary of replacing the actual box cover with something that's not an approved cover for the box. Part of that cover's job is to contain sparky situations. Generally I've only seen shallow cabinets hung "around" the box, or some sort of curtain setup.

comment What is normally done to bridge skirting boards around an opening with different floor levels on each side?
@BMitch, Yep, not the best piece to finish it with. I was going to be strangled if I made one more trip to the hardware store. I'm the only one that notices, naturally.

comment How to remove closet shelf clips and brackets without damaging the wall?
@Tester101 is right, I have those same clips. You still end up with a very noticeable hole. Use a screwdriver to pry the nail up a bit then grab it with a claw hammer or pliers.

comment Why are bulbs burning out quickly in newly installed light fixtures?
Is there anything else on this circuit? Any motor type loads on the same circuit can wear down bulbs.
