How to Install New Outlet Cover Plate - Hubbell Taymac Revive Decorator Wall Plate Review

    After purchasing my home, I always wanted to replace all ugly electrical outlets in my home. The almond colored outlets looked so dated, and I didn't like they were cracked and painted on. I finally installed new one last week!  

     This is the outlet after replacing the cover plate! It looks modern and clean now. :) It took me only a couple of minutes to replace it. It was very quick and easy update, and I am happy with its look now. :)

           Actually, I was going to replace whole electrical outlets and covers, but it's pretty hard for me to understand about electrical wires, so I ended up purchasing this Hubbell Taymac Revive Decorator Wall Plate for this project. It was probably the best decision I've ever made. :) I didn't have to replace old electrical outlets. I just installed new outlet cover plates. Today, I'm going to share how to install Hubbell Taymac Decorator Wall Plate with you.
