Wooooooweeeee. Alex was out of town on a golf trip this past weekend. Looking after everyone and everything around here while he was gone for three days was kinda hard. Note: He doesn't even really golf but let's not go there right now. Hahaha!
A few weeks ago I decided that it was high time to add some fun to the rest of the walls in the dining room. See? Bare walls.
I have some shelves that I want
Alex to build, but for now I thought I would stick to a project that I can tackle on my own. Plates I think I can handle. As long as they don't fall and break (more on that later).
Here are the two inspiration pictures that I've been oogling for the past while:
I've seen some really cool plate walls on Pinterest where the plates are displayed kind of random and haphazardly. They look fun in the pictures online but I just don't think I could live with it in person. Oh, is that a little OCD resurfacing? Yeah, that's what I thought. ;)
Symmetrical and orderly it will be.
So far I've found two round plates / platters that I absolutely love. The first one was a Homesense find. The other I just found on the weekend at Hilltop Interiors.
|Plate - Homesense - $20|
Instead of waiting until I have a great big collection, I think I'll just display a set of three (once I find the third one) so that I can enjoy them right away.
Any tips on the best way to hang the plates so they don't fall off the wall and smash to smithereens? This house gets shaken up daily by routine mining blasts. I read somewhere that Lowes has some plate hangers. Is that all I need? Help!
