Just so much better than expected -
I had my eyes on these for many many months and always had them in the back if my mind for my
ideal "look" - I just couldn't bring myself to pay for shipping because, from the photo, they looked kinda flimsy and I couldn't decide quality. In any case, I always looked for them in every A store (plus 'knock offs') I traveled to online as well. When I finally found them on-site at a random not-near-me anthro location ........ I was mad at myself for waiting! These are GREAT quality and worth the shipping fee. Fabulously heavy and solid - much much better quality then you'd even need. They look just as wonderful in person as in the sites photos + great, great quality. Couldn't be happier with the purchase and more upset that I waited 6+ Months. WORTH THE BUY!
PS: photo quality gives no credit!
This is the prettiest switchplate I have ever seen! I used one for the lightswitch in our bathroom, and it's amazing how much a little detail like this can change the look! It's so much better than the standard ecru-colored switchplates that come in most houses. Our bathroom is decorated with ornate vintage-y black and white items, with deep sand-colored walls, and this was perfect for the decor. I love the way the color contrasts with the wall paint. The quality is great, although, like the other poster mentioned, I do think there was a little problem with getting one of the screws to match up. (My husband installed it, so I'm a bit fuzzy on the details, but I do know that it's hanging perfectly on the wall now, where I expect it to hang indefinitely.) I would definitely recommend this item!
beautiful "vintage" piece
These are beautiful - they look AWESOME with light or dark painted walls. I painted our hallway Valspar "agave blue" the past weekend and added the 3 switch plate cover and it looks absolutely amazing. almost like a piece of art! I also used one in a guest bathroom that has the marta stewart "vintage map" paint and looks great too. they are expensive...esp. if you have a lot of covers, but I would say to use them strategically. don't use them when a piece of furniture is covering...and i would just use them in higher traffic areas so they make a difference! the only reason why quality is 4 stars, is that I sometimes had difficultly lining up the screws exactly - eventually i was able to get it, but it look some trial and error and a little bit of adjusting. Other than that, they are perfect!
