Whenever you paint a room whether it’s a color change or refresh I always suggest you remove your outlet covers. They are very simple to remove and reinstall. It makes a big difference getting behind those covers rather than attempting to cut around them.
Just as easy as it is to remove the screws from your covers it is that easy to loose them! I have tried several methods but the easiest and fastest way to ensure I don’t loose them is to place them on a piece of painters tape fold it and tape it to one of the covers, Quick ,easy and effective!
