I have been wanting to decorate with plates for a while now. Each time I would see a photo of a room with plates on the wall I would think...I have to do this in my dining room.
Just before Christmas I found these gorgeous plates from Home Goods for only $2.99 each.
It was love at first sight when I saw these. I would have bought the complete set to use as a second set of dinnerware, however, the only thing left was six salad plates (I asked the salesperson and she said she had only put these dishes out a few hours before and this was all that was left). I was disappointed at first, but then I realized these would be the perfect plates to hang in my dining room.
In my dining room I have a sunburst mirror over my buffet. I love the mirror but have always felt it needed something more to give it more presence. It seemed too small above the large buffet.
I figured out how far apart I wanted the plates and then, using my favorite tool, marked the spots. This tool is awesome for hanging pictures. It has a built in level too.
I love my new plates.
What do you think? I always love and appreciate your comments.
Don't forget I have a $200 MirrorMate Frames giveaway going on right now.
