#56 Plates over the blank outlets in the living room

When we repainted our living room in the summer 2009 (yes, nearly two years ago), we took two plastic plates off the wall (the kind that cover blank outlets) and they never went back up. The blank spaces are behind a piece of furniture, and really I rarely if ever think of them...but I did when I was writing our 40 Days, 40 Projects list!

Instead of just replacing the covers, I primed the plastic with spray paint and then painted them with same color as the wall. Painting the plates is a lot better than holes in our wall, and quite a bit better than stark white plates on a light brown wall too.
