Beautiful Wall Decor and Art: Plates: Part II

Hello world!
Here is Part II of the Plates feature of my ongoing series titled Beautiful Wall Decor and Art.  Most of these images show plates used as wall decor, but there are a few that also show the use of platters... both are lovely, just take a look!  Also, for more just check out Part I right here or any of the following posts for more wall decor inspiration:

Doing this post reminds me of the obscene amount of decorative plates I have at home in a box....  Most are small teacup plates that I've collected over time for 25 cents here and there at Goodwill and Salvation Army, but they were each so very pretty that I could not resist taking them home.  Each time I justified my purchase with the idea that some day I will make art out of them by hanging them all in a beautiful and elaborate pattern on a wall - most likely in my dining room.  I think it makes fabulous art.... I have a good feeling you do too, so that's why I continue to find these sweet images for your inspiration! :)

A word to the wise: you don't have to run out and buy lots of art and wall decor.... just look around your home for items that can be hung on display.  Pull art and frames from other rooms, bring them together in a swirl of personality by mixing in a bunch of different objects together (such as antique keys, candle holders, plates, crosses, mirrors, shadow boxes, etc) for a warm and eclectic feel in any space!  Remember, just do it, it's really amazing what an interesting art wall can do for a space... and your mood!  It will serve as constant inspiration!

  1. Oh my gosh, all these pictures are a divine inspiration on what to do with the many plate collections I have; I am attracted to the vintage floral plates much like the ones hanging over the bed, mainly because I have gobs of them in boxes too!! I have a collection of the blue & whites, in all shapes, with ribbons, from Martha Stewart and of course, my collection of vintage floral dessert plates that Mama and I collected to hang on our walls in our Florida homes. We too would find them in yard sales and at Goodwills for 10 cents to 25 cents. Our favorite fun was to hunt them down on the cheap! I love, love, love, the wave effect from hanging a multitude of them on a wall, specifically the dining room! The ones hung above the vintage white stove most remind me of the ones I love to hang up. Thank you Catherine for posting so many beautiful pictures to inspire the decorator in all of us! I can't wait til you do a blog on mosiacs, as I have a large box filled with broken and chipped treasures just ready to do projects with!
