wall o’ plates.

We return to pinterest for some more inspiration today.

Have you considered adding a wall of plates in your home?  I love this look and have been stockpiling plates for years.  I used to keep them all on display in my summer house, but now that I have converted it to a photo cottage, I just don’t have a home for all of these plates.  Therefore, I’m selling a lot of them at my Carriage House Sale.  And the prices are dirt cheap at $3 to $6 each.

So, how about some ideas for plate walls?

One of my favorites is this one that includes a customized house number plate.

Use number decals to add the numbers! Or just add a touch of whimsy above a chalkboard with number plates (click on the photo below to link directly to love grows wild’s post about how to add the numbers with a Silhouette machine).

Or you could update the look with a more asymmetrical design such as this one.

One of my all time favorites is this display that mirrors the shape of the headboard.

I don’t happen to have any fish plates at my sale, but I am loving this look for a cabin or lodge.

You could take a lesson from Miss Mustard Seed and arrange monochromatic platters from large to small.

One last clever idea, add word decals and use for a wedding reception!

Let’s face it, there are a lot of fun ways to use pretty vintage plates.  Stock up on some at the Carriage House Sale!
