Painting over electrical outlets
I’m wondering how much of a no-no it is to paint over electical outlets. Here’s the situation, I’ve got a rental property where the prior owner managed to paint over some of the electical outlets, wiped them off (kind of) and theyre all almond colored. Bottom like they look awful. Normally I’d simply replace them, but due to the number of them and the quick turnaround needed to get it rented i’d prefer not to. My idea is just to make a simple mask out of 1/8 masonite and Krylon them. The question I pose is how safe is it to use a solvent based spray on them? Is there a specific NEC code that prohibits this practice?
