Wednesday:  light switch


I took some little girls to a darling pottery painting shop for a summer activity last year where you pick out a piece of unfinished pottery, paint it and they will fire it for you.  There were so many things to choose from – I selected a light switch plate for my project.  It was really fun,  and I thought I was “all that” to have a custom-made light switch plate for my office which has French Provincial colors of yellows, blues and greens.  Well, imagine my surprise when I came across a website with not one idea for custom switch plates but 19! (Just click on the picture to see just how creative you can be!)

And, if you are not in the mood to do something crafty and creative, just take a look at these gorgeous ideas for light switch covers from steampunk to sunflowers to carved wood.

I don’t know about you, but as I am going around my house cleaning all those beige plastic light switch plates, I’ll be dreaming of something with a little more pizzazz, a little more flair that just maybe says a little bit more about who I am and what I love.

Again, like shoes (April 7),  switch plates – fashion or function?  Do you have a “custom” switch plate in your house or did you remove one that said “Miami Heat” when you moved in?
