Light Switch Cover Fun

Recently, I was inspired by a tutorial online to alter a light switch covers!  I obviously instantly thought of my Create Inspirations Paint!  How fun it would be to create a shimmery light switch cover with some bling for my little girl's bedroom!

The plain, boring light switch cover:

I used Mod Podge to cover the light switch cover and then added tissue paper over it and added a little more Mod Podge.

I then used CI Paint "Tickled Pink" to cover the cover.
 I painted it with two coats.

I then used a sponge to sponge "Tutu Pink" on the cover.

 Lastly, I added some bling!  I used some of the jeweled clear inspirations from CI!  In sizes SS30 and SS20, along with some smaller ones from my stash.
The finished light switch, just love at that BLING!

 Now replaced in her bedroom!
It was so fun and easy to make!  Perfect for her bedroom!  She always says "Petty" meaning pretty!

Have a great day!

Gosh, this is a great project and I'm so inspired now. Just sitting here wondering what I can dismantle in my house now. :D
Thanks so much for playing along with us at Make It Monday.

That looks much better after its makeover. Saw your project on Make it Monday and had to come over and take a closer look.
