Taking shape-changing ideas and altered directions- part 17


I think that one of the most wonderful things to make is light switch plates. It is like a small canvas to me or similar to an ATC. They are fun to do, not a huge commitment, and flat like a canvas, that could possibly change the mood of a whole room the moment you walk in and flip that switch.

I can just see this in a room, with leather like looking walls a mellow ochre color, dark wood half way up the walls, dark bookcases, library lamps, huge overstuffed and wood chairs, and a huge desk. It would be dark and cozy with a small brick fireplace and the smell of many tomes floating through the air and I in one of those chairs with my cat on the back and a blankie over my legs, brandy snifter full and a lit candle in a dark cranberry color at the side table, reading away in to the night. Ahhhhhhhhhhh!

 The outlet plates could be a little simpler yet with the same theme to tie the whole room together.

I also love that the screws that hold the plate in place are an integral part of the design.

Oh yeah, I planned that!

I love when things work out better than I could have planned them!

Dream a little dream…
