Decorating with Plates

Lately, I've been keeping my eyes open for some plates like this to decorate a wall in our dining area:

I love the look of plates grouped together on the wall. So simple and easy.


They can work in bookcases and hutches too.





What do you think? Are you a fan of this look?

And, more importantly, do you happen to know where I can find some inexpensive plates like the first picture in green/white?? (I've already checked with HomeGoods...)


Have a great weekend!

I've recently been thinking that I want to do this too, but haven't purchased any yet. I would recommend Salvation Army and Goodwill stores though if you want a good variety and it will keep the project inexpensive.

I love vintage/old plates. I have a few I'd like to hang but haven't gotten around to it.

I like the look- easy and looks pretty. I always have luck with goodwill, salvation army, marshalls, tj maxx and other thrift or second hand stores. good luck finding some!!

I saw the title and thought "no". Saw the images and I am a believer!

I am definitely liking this look, and would love to incorporate plates on my kitchen walls. I'm also on the hunt, if you find any good sources!

I can never get enough, I think I will always love that look.

I totally want to put up a few random & cute plates under the clock in my kitchen, but how does one get them on the wall?

Jessica - they sell plate hangers at places like Michael's or Hobby Lobby. They are metal, with 4 "arms" to hold the plate in place. They are in the framing department. Generally, they are around $2 to $3. And really really easy to hang!

Of course I love the celedon plates from my favorite saved images! :)
