I needed to tackle them.
My very plain switch plate & plug covers.
You know the ones I speak of, the super cheap-white-plastic ones. The kind you can buy in bulk at Home Depot or Loews.
I started with this:
and of course these
So after two light coats of spray paint I now have these. You can really see the texture of the hammered spray paint in the picture below! (see how crooked it is though, hubby will have to get behind there and make that part better.)
A few tips:
– keep the screws in the holes, and paint them at the same time as the covers
– do two light coats. The hammered paint looks holey after the first coat
– once you hang them back up, you may have to touch up the screws a little. I just sprayed a little paint on a paper plate and touched up the scratches. (you can see in the pic above where I did this, you cant see it with the naked eye)
Hammered Spray Paint: $6.99
Wall plates: vary … some under $1
