Looking cheap vs. being cheap
Do light switch covers make you crazy?
Or am I the only one?
Seriously, as I write this I am sending dagger eyes toward the light switch in close proximity to me. I'm in my lovely gray den, and a hideous beige light switch cover is ruining my otherwise perfect wall.
Why oh why is the traditional color of light switch plates a horrible tan/beige?? Who has walls that match this in their house? Oh that's right, I do. Yeah, the pale yellow that the previous owners painted EVERY ROOM IN MY HOUSE, actually match the beige color of the light switch plates- gross, gross, double gross. The only other option is really to do bright white, which also seems a bit boring. Better than beige, but still very boring.
Now I am on a hunt for cool light switch plates. I think I may need to go get some vintage ones, to match my door knobs. Something like this maybe??
I'm not all about painting the light covers, I think they always look a bit weird/cheap. Agreed?
The last thing I want is my house to look cheap. I mean, I may BE CHEAP, but I don't want it to look cheap. I mean come on, we bought a couch-in-a-box, that may be the height of cheap, but I'm pretty sure that it doesn't LOOK CHEAP. Right?

Painted light switch covers (and beige ones) LOOK CHEAP.
I guess I'll add these to the list of millions of things to do. You don't need to be an electrician to change these out right? I don't wait to accidentally kill myself over these. I don't care about them THAT much.
As I'm writing this I am realizing I am probably more crazy than I thought. Why am I even spending time on light switch covers...like I don't have way more things to worry about.
