Oil-rubbed bronze Rustoleum spray paint on all of my old, white, plastic switch plates! Paint=$5.00. New switch plates=$60.00. Pinterest victory!! (Thoroughly wash and dry old plates first!) Good luck finding the paint to, it has become quite popular apparently.
Cool idea. The next time you go yardsale-ing and see an old, weird plate, buy it for 25 cents, store it, and wait till you have a dozen weird plates. Funny how a LOT of weird things is suddenly cooler than 1 weird thing.
