I’m am almost ready to reveal mission craft room makeover! I already shared my craft stools makeover. Today, I thought I’d make matching switchplates for all the outlets in the room. They were all old and yellow and I almost bought new white ones. I saw the leftover fabric from my stools and opted to make these simple DIY fabric covered switchplates.
Time: 20-30 Minutes (not including dry time)
Watch the video tutorial:
First, cut the fabric slightly larger than the switchplate. Apply a generous amount of Mod Podge on the front and sides of the plate. Place it upside down on the center of your fabric. Apply more Mod Podge to the ends and fold each side over using binder clips to hold down the fabric.
Leaving the binder clips on and placing the plate face side down on a cutting mat, use a craft knife to cut out the center piece of fabric in each switchplate hole. Use more Mod Podge to smooth down the edges and trim any frayed pieces of fabric. Use the tip of the craft knife to cut an X in the center of each screw hole. Allow the plate to dry for about 15 minutes. Screw the switchplate over the outlet.
In case you missed it, check out the matching barstools I made and stay tuned for my craft room makeover reveal coming soon!
