LOL, it has a switch plate on it now. I had a problem with the wiring and my brother had to help me out. When I connected the new switches, the switches in my bedroom didn't work. This house is VERY odd.

Hi Kimberland30
Glad to hear you got the switches covered.
I am no one to talk with almost all my light switches uncovered. I am in the middle of total controlled KAYOS. Lights going off when new ones are connected doesn't sound good. Hopefully you have fixed that problem. If not I would get some one in the know (Electrician) to look at what is going on. Better safe than burnt. lol.......I have a few priors in that dept.
Again on your Den.

Mark, seriously the electrical in our house needs to be upgraded something fierce. Our neighbors just did theirs for a cost of about $2k, which we don't have right now (thanks to our teen starting college in the fall). Whenever I run the blowdryer in our bathroom, I have to make sure all the lights in the front of the house are off so as to not blow a fuse. And forget about Christmas lights...my husband loves the Griswald look with 8 million strands, and if we turn them on at the same time we blow a fuse. So luckily I can use that as an excuse not to have every Christmas lawn ornament on the market.

But the issue with the bedroom lights/switches has been resolved, I just don't know what was done to fix it.

Jay, thank you. It's now my favorite room of the house!
