Dana from the blog “ME, MYSELF & DIY,” has a brilliant idea for how to spruce up your switch plates on a dime. In this tutorial, Dana demonstrates how, for only two dollars, she added vintage frames to her light switch plates. First, she simply painted them white to match the plates. Check out the images below to learn how you can do this in your home.
This is what Dana’s light switch plates looked like when she started. Plain, white, and simple. She was tired of having the same plates as everyone else, she set out to find frames that would set hers apart.
Dana went to the local dollar store and and found these frames. She recommends bringing your plates with you to the store and holding them up to the frames to ensure you get a perfect fit.
Just put them together with some super glue and you are good to go.
You can leave the frames as-is if you want something extra eye-catching, but Dana finished hers off with some white spray paint.
How good does this look?
The finished product gives some nice texture to the wall and makes sure that no two light switches are the same!
