Switch Plate Upgrade

I've seen all kinds of switch plate updates, but I really wanted mine to go with the trim in my master. I used dollar store and thrift shop frames to create my look - but you could use trim or some other wood as well. Now I think I might end up doing my whole house...if I only had the time! More details about how I did this on the blog.

    And I think this is a fantastic idea! I have got to go out shortly and I will make a special stop at the Dollar Store just to get supplies to accomplish a couple of them today. Thanks for sharing!!! can't wait to get started.

    Thanks so much. I have a little space around the outlet that wasn't covered by the plate (after moving the switch) and wasn't able to find a larger place.. so this is just what I needed.
