Plates, Plates and MORE Plates

If it’s not chairs, it’s plates with me! I don’t know if I’d call it an obession, but close to a fetish it is!

Just a few of the little buggers!

I’ve been collecting plates for longer than I’d like to admit. I get them as souvenirs on vacations, find them at thrift shops, friends find them for me…..idk. I would hang them on the walls in my kitchen or bathroom. But let’s face facts, a person only has sooooo much wall space. So when I moved into this current home, most of them ended up staying boxed up. My mood was blue and white plates only. And there was no shortage of those.

The kitchen remodel was screaming for blue and white. I think I delivered!

A few months ago I came across them…… All. Of. Those. Plates. What to do, what to do? So I sort of, also, love old frames. Different kinds, textures, shapes. Again…idk.

This sweet beauty is my all-time favorite, made into a mirror.

So I thought why not let the plates and the frames get to be good friends! By simply cutting a piece of 1/4″ plywood the size of the frame (as if you were having glass cut) and then stabilizing inside the frame I would have my base to mount the plates. Added some burlap and then screws where I wanted to ‘hang’ the plates inside the frame.

A point I may add…. a LOT less holes in the walls! 😍

Frames and plates can be found all over the place and make great decor! Mix and match.

Just had a great idea for a farmhouse decor — go with this same look but sub in milk glass plates or platters. You. Are. Welcome!!

Hope you enjoy! Hope all are safe and sound AND Spring is almost here! Well…at least in Georgia. Take care!
