I shop my local Habitat for Humanity ReStore for more than just the deals. I’m there to open my brain to inspiration, like this project with light switches.When I saw a pile of light switches at my local Habitat for Humanity ReStore, I was inspired to make wall art.

Step 1: Add Color

And since I like a quick project, I updated the color of the light switches with spray paint from Krylon in a pretty shade of blue called Bahama Sea.

Step 2: Create the Backer

For the backer, I distressed a piece of wood with a Bernzomatic torch, hammer, and sand paper.

Step 3: Attach the Light Switches
