I put this peel and stick wallpaper up in our butlers pantry a year ago. Yes, a YEAR. And lived with our outlet covers like this:

Binder | Paper Drawers | Wall Rail Organizer

Now to be fair, I did intend to BUY new covers. I was eyeing these that we have in our upstairs hallway. But life happened and honestly, my mind had moved on to other projects. (Side Note – I do have a habit of leaving a project at 95% complete which I am working on but will save that blog post for another day!)

Soooo I forgot about them. Until this week when I was researching wallpaper for our upcoming primary bathroom project through the One Room Challenge and came across a photo of wallpapered outlets. what? Why didn’t I think to do this a YEAR ago. And I had a small sheet of wallpaper left over so, why not try it!

Rug | Chair

Key Steps I Learned:

  • Place the outlet cover (unscrewed) onto the wall outlet and then gently cover it with your piece of wallpaper. You’ll want a couple inch overhang on all sides. This creates a cohesive alignment and ensures you have enough paper to fold over.
  • Fold in the sides first and angle cut the top and bottom before folding then in last (see example below)
  • Use an xacto knife rather than a razor blade to cut interior circles and screw holes

And that’s it! I completed 5 outlet covers in about a half hour with leftover wallpaper so basically a FREE project you can easily tackle for you home that makes a massive impact.

What other outlet cover solutions have you done? Would love to hear! Share in the comments below.
