Before & After: Washi Switch Plates

Before & After: Washi Switch Plates

Light switch plates aren't something I give much thought to. Until I see a really cute one. Mari, who blogs at Crab + Fish, used washi tape (the craft material du jour) to transform plain light switch plates in her home. It's simple, cheap and super renter-friendly.

As you can see, she didn't just do one or two switch plates, she liked the look so much that she kind of just kept on going. Each plate, she says, only takes minutes and the only materials you need are washi tape, scissors and a screwdriver.

Check out her post at Crab + Fish for plenty of step-by-step photos and her tips for making the corners nice and smooth.
