Out Of The Box,Finaly!

I posted about the plates below before. I took six of these:



and this picture below:



traced around them on newspaper. Put the newspaper up on my wall. And chose this arrangement to put them on the wall with:



And, now it looks like this:




I took the picture with and without flash but you still couldn't see the print in the pictures. My house is way to dark! The poor plates had been in closets or boxed away for years! ( I think I got them in DE in the 80's.) Have you had something you love stored away for a long time? I want to get my "things" out and use them! Hope you can get your things out too!

Great ideal for hanging pictures. Those plates were really pretty.
And I'm sorry to say I do have things in boxes from when I moved into this house they are books, but I'm still in need of more bookshelves. Thanks for visiting.

Your plate hangings look wonderful. Love the way you did this! I've put so many holes in the walls because of wrong placement! :)
Be a sweetie,

Well look how organized you are and how clever! I just eye things and end up making lots of nail holes! That arrangement looks great!

You are so smart to do this. The arrangement is perfect. Like eveyone else, I have to go over my rooms every now and then and fill in holes!! I'll use your idea, tho, for the next grouping.
O, and my magazine rack was built by Mr. Sweet....:O)
