Baird Brothers’ light switch and outlet covers save you loads of time finishing out your favorite room. Instead of getting bogged down making hardwood outlet covers, they’ll sell you one and ship it right to your home for about $6 per cover — and no one has to know.
That works great for me, as I love the look of the wooden plate covers but don’t want to spend all the shop time to make and finish them when I could builld other (more interesting) projects. Plus, the Baird Brothers plates come in seven different finishes and look sweet right from the start — without me doing of bit of sanding.
They’re available in almost any common switch or outlet combo, and the Bros’ will make you one if you have some sort of freaky wiring job that requies an odd size — or if you’ve got a crazy desire for exotic wood. Teak switch plates, for example, might cross over to the extreme side of custom room décor, but they’re still cool as hell.
