Plates. This post is about plates. Wanna make something of it?

So, I wanted a cute play on words for my title--something like "Sliding into home plate" or something like that, but it seemed too cheesy--so I took the road less traveled.  Wanna make something of it? Can you tell I'm feeling a bit sassy?

I learned from the Nester that practically anything can go on your walls.  An old door.  Plates.  Shutters.  Whatever.  While I haven't been brave enough to ask James if we can tack a door onto the wall, I have added many plates to our bare and undecorated walls.  I found a few at thrift shops and some in the clearance racks of my favorite stores.  Putting plates on the wall is cheap, pretty, and unique--perfect for a Spartan like me.

Here are the cool plates I have added to our walls so far:

Everyone wants a cow with butcher markings on it in their kitchen, right?

This grouping is in my dining room, as are these:

These plates were $3.50 each at World Market and the plate rack was $3.99 at Goodwill.  Boo-yah!

These plates were $1.25 each at a Marshalls going out-of-business sale.  I have considered filling the inside square in with chalkboard paint like some plates I saw at Pottery Barn a long while ago, but we'll see if I ever get to that...

Have plates on your walls?  Suggestions?  Please leave a comment!


  1. world market is one of my favorite stores--if not THE favorite! those plate decorations are awesome!

  2. Yes I just put up 4 plates on my wall. They are dessert size, kimono/japanese style. They had them in four different colours so I got them all. Some plates are too nice to hide in the cupboard.
    These are it:
