I recently painted my living room (Martha Stewart Sharkey Gray), and I just didn't have the heart to put the ugly, cheap, glaringly white switch plate back up. I also lacked the energy to go back to Home Depot. Then I realized the solution was in my garage: old books and mod podge.
I chose a page from City, a book both my husband and I like (there are not many, we read very different books). It took no time; once the sheet was glued down, I used an exacto knife to cut x's in the holes where the switches stick through, folded back the flaps, added a few more layers of glue, and viola! Free and easy, my kind of project.
Here's to sunny days and simple projects!
