Back and Switching it Up!

Came home from Pittsburgh to find three packages-- two of supplies and one filled with all of my light switchplates from Somerset Home. I honestly forgot that I made some of them like this beachy one below:

I will be putting most of these in my shop. This one (below) was featured in the magazine. I used a Ventian plaster technique on it, painted and glazed it. After I attached the old skeleton key, I rubbed some distress ink on it to "match" the rust on the key.

 Also working on a huge order of custom switch plates for a lovely lady's newly refurbished beach house!  One down (below) and about 10 to go! I think that will be a fun project!
