I’ve got plates on my walls

It all started with this plate and a blank wall:

The plate was my mom’s. I loved it. She gave it to me. What a gal!

It’s too pretty (just look at that texture) to hide in a cupboard.

So I decided to start a plate collection to fill up that blank wall.

But how to hang them in the easiest way possible? That’s where Disc Hangers come into play. Cheap, easy to use – perfect.

I felt like I wasn’t quite done…so here’s the latest batch I hung this weekend:

Here’s the outcome:

I’m not sure it’s quite finished – the symmetry feels a bit off. But I think I’m good to go for a while. Time to start on the framed photo wall in the hall!

    Oh my gosh! I love this! Wanna come do one in my house? :)

    • Hell yeah! It’s so fun. And a *relatively* cheap way to add color and texture to the walls. Most of those plates were pretty inexpensive (some as cheap as $3) and the plate hangers are super cheap and they work great!

    Lovin´the crap out of your plates! I have plates up in every room but I´ve been feelin´an update is needed. I usually go with a one or two colr theme, but I like all the variety on yours!

  3. Thanks, Julie! Have you tried Disc Hangers? They work like a charm. But there is a caveat I forgot to mention – they don’t work so great on anything other than ceramic and glass (i.e. I tried a plastic plate at one point and the disc hanger wouldn’t properly adhere to the surface). I like the variety, too. It’s been hard to make myself break out of the smaller color scheme mind frame, though.

    My mother is an encyclopedia of useless information (sorry, ma, but it's true) - no one can beat her at Trivial Pursuit. As I age, I become more like dear old mom everyday. I routinely tell people about resources, recipes, tips, tricks, or websites I've heard about, tried, live by, etc. until one of my clients urged me to start a blog. So here it is! My perpetual ramblings. I hope you find them useful and amusing. If you don't, you can either keep it to yourself or leave me a well constructed critique.

    I'm a former massage therapist, a freelance journalist, and a web information architect and UX designer. I enjoy yoga, the Bar Method, camping, reading, gardening, and spending time with my friends and loved ones. I live in Colorado.
