Wallcovering Around Switch Plates and Electrical Outlets

Remember to turn off the electricity. Remove switch plates and outlet covers. Hang wallpaper and simply smooth strip gently over the outlet or switch area. With a sharp knife, pierce paper at the center of the fitting and make diagonal cuts toward each corner. Press paper against wall around edge. Trim away surplus. You can cover the outlets and switch plates with leftover wallcoverings.
