So while I had my paintbrush out and filled with beautiful white glossy paint, I thought it couldn’t hurt to slap a little extra on our sad and shabby looking light switch in the front hall, you know, just to clean it up for now.
Why not just throw a new switch plate up there?
Well, the whole thing, switch and all really needs to be changed out. Chris isn’t going to have the time to do that, and I’m not about to attempt it quite yet.
And while we’re at it, we really should actually rewire the whole house. OK, except the kitchen, which is up to current codes.
So you see…. a little paint goes a long way for right now.
I love finding new things that can be helped by paint! The possibilities really are endless!
