Rated 5 out of 5 by ellenphant 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!

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!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Kristina I was excited to get these but they did not work out for me. They are well made with a beautiful vintage design. However, mine did not flush with the wall so if looking at them from the side there were big gaps. It just did not look right I was so disappointed and had to return them.
