I love the look of a plate wall and have been "eyeing" the wall in my dining room for a while as the perfect spot to start one. But I had to take that first step and get things rolling. So, I headed to Goodwill and Marshalls to check out their plate collections. I scored at Marshalls where I found several plates (mainly white) that were only a couple dollars each! I picked up some plate hangers at Walmart and took them home. There in my craft room, my supplies sat for about a week until I felt the urge to get the project started. I layed them out in the floor, played around a bit with the display and started nailing! Here's how it looks right now...
The cool thing about a plate wall is that I can add to it as I collect more plates. I love changing things up a bit! Do you have a plate wall in your home? Or maybe a fun collection that you have displayed somewhere...please share!
Find something this week to paint! Maybe it's a piece of furniture that needs some refreshing or a wall that needs to "pop" a bit more. Remember that paint is cheap and easy...and it can transform a room! Drag something outside and get busy with a can of spray paint. You'll be amazed at how easy it is!
