PAINTING OUTLET COVERS

Switchplates can be removed from the wall, but if you do this) you must turn off the power supply first. To take off the cover, ease the plate from the surface with a screwdriver or flat-bladed knife. Then carefully paint behind the surround. An easier option is to paint around the cover. To do this, stick masking tape around the edges.

 

CAREFULLY PAINT AROUND THE TAPE

 

ADDING DETAILS

Wooden and plaster details, such as moldings, cornices, and dado rails, should be painted with a small decorating brush or artist’s brush. Paint the background color with a 1-in (25 mm) brush and then pick out the fine details with an artist’s brush. Keep your hand steady on a maulstick as you paint. Use masking tape see opposite) to keep a straight line between two colors.

 

REST YOUR HAND ON A MAULSTICK
