Book light switch covers

Standard

When we first moved into the house I began the process of replacing the light switch covers. For some reason the idea of constantly touching something that someone else used to constantly touch really bothered me! I replaced the covers in our bathroom, bedroom, kitchen and living room with Etsy-bought switch plate covers, but I just couldn’t find something that I wanted for our family room.

We spend the most time in our family room, probably because it has the TV in there. The decor in this room has a movie/TV/music theme, so I was constantly on the look-out for something that would go with that theme. I toyed with several Harry Potter themed switch plates, but I didn’t like any of them enough to buy, so I left it. That is until I found this on Pinterest. It was perfect!
Rather than using Harry Potter, however, I decided to use my favorite book, The Giver. I bought a copy of the book for $4 used on Amazon.com with my Swagbucks, and prepared to cut up a perfectly good book (yikes).

I chose one of my favorite passages for the single switch plate, and a happy passage discussing happy memories on the double switch plate. I followed the directions in this post, (mostly) and was very pleased with my work!

You can see the words on the other side slightly, and the sealer made it look different than I thought, but I think it looks a little old fashioned, so I like it.
