Check it out:
This is what I started with, beige outlets and a can of rustoleum gloss protective enamel in white. Sooo it's not like I used a cheapy can of spray paint from the dollar store. Hopefully this stuff will hold up. If I have to do it yearly, I'm okay with that. I'm fully prepared for the consequences....if electric shock is not one of them. Been there. Done that.
After two quick bursts on each outlet, this is what I ended up with.
Looks good to me. Now I just have to splurge while I'm grocery shopping today and pick up new .39 cent covers in a crisp white. Unless I want to go fancy, in which case, I'll stop by Lowe's.
As I mentioned, I also did a light switch that was in the room.
Regretfully, I took this picture after it was already painted. I wanted to show off the fancy template I made for this switch since it was on a wall of woodlawn colonial gray. Annnd again:
Last night I sprayed the top of the switch and then first thing this morning I flipped it and did the bottom.
So what do you guys think? I'm sure there are some people out there shaking their pointer fingers at me. I'm happy with the result. I'll let you know in a day or two if my outlets still work. Ha!
Anyone doing and DIY projects this weekend? I'd <3 to hear about it!
Oh, I almost forgot. Everyone loves a sidy-by-side comparison.....
