    It is a cute idea and you can find fabric in just about any subject.

    Exactly! I'm already thinking of the holidays. But would also look nice in a manly theme for a man's den.

    What's even nicer - they make clear plastic switch covers and outlet covers - you just put a piece of fabric on the inside, cut appropriate holes and you're all set - no glueing and it's not permanent. I change my fabric every once in awhile - especially for holidays.

    I stripped wallpaper at our old house, only to find that they hadn't primed the drywall board first. My solution, I covered that wall with a batik fabric. It was GORGEOUS! The people who bought the house wanted me to come back and help them do the decorating. :)

    Lol I did this when my kids were all little. We lived in a trailer house and I got sick and tired of looking at the dark panel walls. so I took that down and then I used sheets and put them on the walls like they were wall paper, covered the switchplates with the same fabric. I got alot of compliments on that. It did look pretty cool.lol
