Use the screws from your old switch plate cover to hang up your new one. If they seem to shiny or bright to you, tone them down with a little black sharpie marker applied to the screw head. We won't spill the beans on your secret.
This switch plate cover has been clear-coated, but if it is exposed to the elements, you may want to use a little spray-on enamel about once a year to keep it looking glossy and fresh.
Each unique fair trade metal sculpture is hand- cut from recycled 55- gallon steel drums. To begin the process, both ends of the drum are removed and placed inside of the remaining cylinder, along with scrap paper and dried banana or sugar cane leaves. Next, the contents are set ablaze to burn off any paint or residue and strengthen the metal. When cooled, the drums are sliced down the side and flattened, effectively creating a "steel canvas" of approximately 5' x 9.5', upon which the design is drawn. Using a hammer, chisel and various other primitive tools, the desired image is cut out and decorative patterns are pounded into the metal. Finally, a weather-proof finish coating is applied, making these fascinating pieces of folk art perfect for displaying indoors or outdoors.

Even more beautiful than I anticipated I am very very happy and it looks gorgeous in my bathroom. The color didn't come out great in the photo but my wall is a dark eggplant and I loved it because in my bathroom this will get a patina over time. Very happy to support an artist, would purchase from them again.
