a nickel for your thoughts.

Seeing as though we are knee deep in wedding planning, which is a bit costly, most of the updates and redesign work that The Fiancé  and I want to do are on hold until we return from our honeymoon.  Having said that, there are a few little improvements here and there that don't cost much, if anything at all, and changing out the outlet switch plates is one of them.  His house, like most, is currently all dolled up with those ugly, plastic, manilla-colored face plates that just scream dowdiness, ugliness and yuck.  Sorry, that was harsh.  But true.

Sooooo, we're moving on up you guys and replacing the plastic nightmares with these bad boys.
These nickel switch plates from Lowes are going to look diiii-vine against our recently painted Kendall Charcoal living room and I'm convinced that this small touch of metal is just the trick to help make the house feel young and vibrant.  I was unsuccessful at finding any examples of rooms with nickel switch plates, so you'll have to wait in anticipation for the reveal (which will hopefully take place this weekend if I can convince a certain someone of why it needs to be done before Christmas).
Have any of you updated your home with metal switch plates?  I'd love to hear your feedback!
