Yes John, I would consider it a work space violation. Not only that, it's a pretty nasty sort of a trick to go hiding panels like that. Oh well, your customer paid for that lapse of memory!. Mind you, driving nails into a wall above a panel, isn't exactly my idea of a great party trick.

I've hidden a panel behind a picture myself. As for the hook, I used a magnetic backed piece of metal with a prong bent out to hang the picture on. Magnetically stuck to the steel panel cover. The botton of the panel does extend an inch or so below the bottom of the picture. No nail to find a wire with, and I can easily remove the magnetic hook before the electrician comes Just hope nobody decides to loosen the panel cover screws and slip the picture hanging wire over and behind the cover....
At least the desk wasn't up against the wall; all you had in the way was a chair on wheels.
