I miss the old-fashioned light switches in our old house (seen in our house tour here). They were so cute and charming. Our new house is not “new” but it is not old enough to have details like that house had. I decided to make my own faux vintage style light switch covers.
I started with the basic white plastic covers, and painted them with some gold paint and a sponge paint brush. I just used one coat. After that paint dried, I used a second type of gold rub on paint to add some variation. Very easy, and I am quite happy with the results!
