Question

flushing receptacals to wall


I'm redoing the walls in my livingroom. One wall looks as though it may need more attention than the rest. I've figured the easiest way to make this wall look good again is to just cover it with a layer of 1/4" drywall and start over. Well this wall has two receptacals in it. My question: is there an easy way to bring these receptacals flush with the new layer of drywall? Or do i need to cut out enough of the old wall in order to move the boxes forward that 1/4"? This is a great site. Thanks for the help.
