Rated 5 out of 5Â by LolaLand The perfect touch
After reading about others' experiences with this item, I made sure to check the switchbox I had in mind. For whatever reason (old house? -1939), the exposed box was only 1"x2", so this switchplate works perfectly without any puttying or painting. It is solid and heavy, and was simple to install -I just used the screws from my old plate. Just check your switchbox before you buy!

This is adorable but like other reviewers stated, it's rather narrow so may not fully cover the switch box in the wall(can be fixed with a bit of work though). Furthermore, mine wasn't completely flat so I can't screw it all the way flush against the wall resulting in a slight gap if you look at it from the side. With a plastic cover I would have tried to screw it a bit further but with this plaster type material I was afraid it would break.
So if you're a perfectionist don't get this but if you don't mind a couple irregularities then absolutely buy this unique switchplate.

I really love owls, and this one brightens up the little nook where I have set up a home office. I had to install it over the plastic switchplate cover, but painted that to match the wall so the owl would stand out on it's own.
