Decorate My Home, Part 12: Decorate with Plates


I had a great idea to put plates on my wall……to finish off our bedroom.

So I bought three of them.

In a nice and sassy cherry red, to place right above the headboard.

While that project was stewing………I spray painted a picture frame cherry red, so that I could use my Bird Branch print from Fall Down Tree.

The print was intended for my craft room…
Well, or maybe the nursery…
But the red on the frame was an exact match with my plates. So I quickly decided that the print was going to hang out in my room for a while.

Sweet little Bird Branch.
Maybe I’ll share it with my craft room in a few months.
For now, I love that print.

(Thanks again Adam and Jill.)

As for the plates, I found some plate hangers at Pier One. They came in many sizes. But after I bought them and closely inspected them, I’m remembering that I have seen these same plate hangers at Hobby Lobby…..and I’m sure a variety of other places. (That center section is 2 springs, so it stretches and keeps the hooks snug around the plate.

The little hooks show just a bit from the front, but keeps that little beauty in place.

Have fun with those plates.
And whatever else you match them with.
