No Electrician Needed! New Outlets

Owning a Home comes with a price. No matter how we budget we still see things we would like to fix or change. Does that sound familiar?
Well I’m always looking for easy but decorative ways of updating and I just happen to find some thing I used so I wouldn’t have to call a Electrician to change out outlets that were in tan and dated the house. Join me and see how cool these are and soooo Simple!

Moved into my home and I noticed all the outlets and light switches were tan.
I thought, I will just have them replaced. So I took my clipboard out and started adding them up…… light switches 21 wall outlets 28. Oh My, so many.
How much are they going to cost and gosh, how about the electricians fee. On to Plan “B”……..

Plan “B”

What is all the “hullabaloo” about these crazy covers?  Will this put Electrician’s “out of business”? NO! 

But it sure will put some money in your bank account or reserve what is there…..

Scour the internet, there has to be something that can help. There was.
I found these on Amazon and decided to start with something I could handle my self. I bought several white outlet covers and installed them over the existing electrical outlets.
