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!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Raquelt Disappointed it doesn't fit
I rarely write reviews of products but feel obligated to warn potential buyers. I ordered the switchplate online after eyeing it for weeks. I was so excited when it arrived that I immediately went to install it, only to discover that (as other people have noted, should have listened!) it doesn't cover the standard hole in the wall for square switchplates and the opening for the switch itself is too large. If I owned a home I might mess around to try to make it work, but I live in an apartment and it just doesn't seem feasible so will sadly have to return it. Hate to be a comment board complainer but I definitely don't recommend this if you have a standard square hole in your wall that you don't want showing!

Rated 1 out of 5 by SueM I Would Not Buy This Switchplate
This Swithplate is great from the front, very cute indeed. BUT unfortunately there are no screws included (at least none in my shipment) and the back of the owl is flat, and doesnt take into account the slightly raised modern light switches, so this doesnt lie flat against the wall...so I am very dissappointed with the design.
