I love making switch plates too! Yours look so good and I love the pictures you chose. Did you paint the plates white first or was that their original color? If so, what kind of paint did you use (since I am assuming the plates are plastic?). anways, those are great and you should be proud!  Cheesy

wow...oak!? Are they a lot more expensive than the plastic ones? I'm sure they look a lot nicer and feel more substantial.

I love these!  This may be a stupid question, but how do you attach them to a wall?  Don't they usually have screws in them?

Velcro I hate screws in my images limits what is already  really limited Pict's that work with a big toggle switch in the middle of them . make a see thro template with the hole for the switch colored with A sharpie or just cut it out.. I take mine everywhere just in case I see something interesting .
