Painted Switchplates

Switchplates?

You know: the plastic covers for the wall switches.

I've decided to paint the switchplates in this house, along with the outlet wall plates. Not all at once, but one at a time when the mood strikes. So far I've painted three switchplates.

There are a lot of switchplates and wall plates in our home. I'm hoping the Husband will join me in painting some.

  1. Very funky :) Do they match the decor of each room or are they in contrast? They look good whichever they are :)

    1. Funky, I like that description, Eunice. They don't match or contrast with the decor being decor is nonexistent. It's comme ce, comme ca in this house.

    1. You can do this, Sallie! I only started really playing with paints a month ago or so. I had no rhyme nor reason when I painted these switchplates. I hope you try it. Please share should you do.

    1. You can paint over beige. Ours a dirty tan. Maybe they were once white.

  4. That's a fun idea ... you home is going to be full of colour from stem to stern before you're finished! :D ... outside too. :)

    1. That's my aim! The Mama's objective was lots of flowers. Mine is lots of color.

  5. These are great and I hope you put a coating on so the paint doesn't come off. I love them-they remind me of your garden and travels on Tildy

    1. I didn't do that. Something to Google. Thanks for the tip, Birgit.
