DIY Network: Because What Girl Wouldn’t Like Sparkles

August 16, 2012   //  Posted in: Bedrooms, Decor, DIY   //  By: Emily   //  2 responses

Hot on the tails of my pink stripe paint job, I decided to give the light switch plates and outlet covers in Julia’s room a little alley-oop as part of my latest crafty undertaking. You’ll have to check out today’s post on DIY Network to see the whole tutorial and learn more about the sparkles and patterned tape that I picked out, but I think they turned out really nicely.

How to make outlet covers for DIY Network.

P.S. DIY Network posted some fun inspiration about building a custom deck earlier this week, and I couldn’t help but chime in with my own experiences. You can check out that bonus post here.

    Wow, love this! It’s such a simple idea but I’ve never seen it before – was looking for fancy chrome light switch plates the other day as they seem to be the only option for non-standard ones, but this is such a good idea! Definitely on my to-do list for my current home renovation project (and great you got a feature on DIY Network, I read that blog all the time!)
