New Switchplates

Today I decided to redo my switchplates. First I went downstairs into my sewing room to look for scraps of fabric to use. I bought the clear plastic switchplate covers and cut some material to fit inside. I think they came out really cute! Here's a pic of one I did.

My Dad

Here's a pic of my dad I decided to put in my primitive bedroom. The frame was a worn brassy color so I decided to go over it with some white paint and then take a little off with a cloth to give it that old worn look. Since the wall color is so dark I thought the lighter colored frame would stand out more. My grandmother had this done in l924.

"Betsy Ross House" Brown

Well I finished painting the room and hanging curtains. The curtains were made by my friend Claire. I purposely lowered them on the window so you could see the beautiful woodwork around the window. The sharp contrast between the trim and wall color is beautiful. Next I'll be changing all my wall switches and plugs! Very easy to do!
