Post your newly decorated switchplates here. Bonus points for you if you photograph them on the wall where they'll live!  Smiley

I have in-progress shots of mine being made (my sweetie is a bit obsessed with his camera) so there'll be a whole "making of" story for mine!

Words can't descibe the beauty that is my new switchplate. I had the very creative rackycoo, our dear organizer, as my Pimpette. It goes well with my tropical bathroom, which is anchored by anything with a flamingo on it.

As you can see, it is a major improvement. Before: drab.


After: fab!!!


My crap camera doesn't do it justice. It's all sparkly on the sides, and the flamingos are 2-D -- they're puffy! Amazing!

I've been feeling poorly today, and when this came in the mail it made my day! Thank you so much rackycoo, (and I have extreme swap anxiety now)!

Wow, that was fast! I'm glad you like it. And don't worry about yours; I'm sure I'll love it. My before looks exactly like yours: boring! Anything with a little pimped up action will be an improvement.  Smiley
