Painting Smoothine outlet covers

We are often asked if Smoothline cover plates can be painted.  The answer is yes -- with some care.  Give the face of the wall plate a light sanding with a fine wet/dry paper to remove the gloss.  Then make sure the parts are clean.  Then spray the parts with a quality primer and paint such as Krylon, following the paint manufacturer's recommendations.


With care, the result is a outlet cover that matches the outlet or wall.  Visit DesignMod.com for more information on Smoothline wall plates.
