The other day, someone left a comment on our antique mural wallpaper post saying, “Looks great! Now you just need to change that old light switch cover!”

I had to laugh a little bit because I guess in a world where people want to replace old with new, I’m finding myself leaning more and more into the old. So much that I even replace new items around our house with vintage style versions.

I LOVE vintage light switch covers, old doorbell covers, and all of the antique style hardware pretties to sprinkle all around the house.

Before getting to work on all of the “big” furniture in Olivia’s room (bedsides this sweet little desk and chair I gave a quick makeover), I’ve been determined to slow down and appreciate the small details.

So I changed her basic plastic light switch cover for this $5 antique brass wall plate. I love how much character such a small piece of hardware can bring into a space!

Would you like to save this?

We'll email this post to you, so you can come back to it later!

It really is the little things that make a difference in a room sometimes.
