We put octagon boxes in a new ceiling but now we want to put outlets in the octagon boxes for plug in ceiling lights. The only box cover i can find will not extend beyond the sheetrock edge to cover the seams. Is there a part i can buy as a solution, or.....?

Raco makes what is called a 1/2" plaster ring that will screw to the round light box like a blank plate only it has a 1/2" raise in the plate and a duplex or even a single receptacle installation built in. The receptacle will mount to the inside of the plaster ring. The drywall will lay flush with the plaster ring and the plaster ring will act as the receptacle plate. Inexpensive method to resolve you quest.

Hope this helps
