Eclectic Plate Wall...

I wanted to share with you a little update
Remember that cute little plate wall?
My plate wall was actually on an
episode of "Secrets From a Stylist"  
on HGTV with Emily Henderson!!! 
I almost died when a follower of my blog told me.
It's on the episode called "Graphic Antique"
if you want to go watch it.. don't blink because it's a
quick flash of it... but hey, I'll take it!!

Well I ran into a little dilemma the other day...
I was getting sick of it, I was about to take down all the
plates & do something different with the wall
until my husband said something that changed my mind.
He suggested among all the white plates, I hang
one colorful plate. BRILLIANT!!
Love him. He seriously inspires me a lot
& this was one of those times. 
I love how it turned out, so I will keep the 
Eclectic plate wall a little longer...


Before...


I loved the wall before,
I am just me & I always am making changes
to everything in my home.


I took some plates down & switched a few around.
After that I added one green bird plate
adding a pop of color in my eclectic wall art. 


The yellow bench is still there,
but there has been talk about that changing too.
I am on the lookout for a buffet instead
of my pretty hutch. 


The plates are all hung on the wall
with plate hangers {found at Lowes}
You could always make some homemade 
plate hangers out of paper clips and hot glue. 
The plates are all from TJ Maxx, except the bird plate
that one is out of my plate set from Peir 1.


I love the pop of color of the plate
with the pop of color with the yellow bench, & the
blue hutch.


I am a clean freak & a perfectionist
so at times the plates look crooked & I could
adjust them forever, but I've learned
to embrace the imperfections of my plate
wall. To me it gives it more character 
& aesthetic appeal.


Along with all my painted furniture,
I have been debating on bringing in natural wood
to warm up the dining/living room...


The black table? Changing soon!!
Stay tuned for that.. I'm excited about all the changes.


Have you made a plate wall?
I would love to see it,
Link it up on Liz Marie Blog Facebook page!
Thanks for stopping by my blog today...
It's been such a busy week in my
"paint studio" I can't wait to show you
all of the finished products.
Talk to you soon...
xx Liz

  7. I absolutely love it! I love when my husband suggests something that makes all the difference in the world, except he has to walk around strutting his stuff for days :-)

    I have always loved your plate wall and it gave me inspiration for my wall decor http://spruceyournest.blogspot.com/2011/09/burlap-art.html

    I didn't want to do it exactly the same as your's since you were the inspiration for my hutch as well, ha ha!

  35. this looks so pretty against the yellow bench. awesome. can i ask a dumb question? are the plate hooks invisible? i don't see any of those little 'claws' that people typically use when hanging plates.

    ReplyDelete

  41. I love that plate wall...I have always wanted to do a plate wall - I really need to! That bench is a gorgeous yellow!

  42. I love your plate wall! I'm starting on one soon, and to tell you the truth, I'm a little nervous. I have this vision in my head of how it's going to look, but what if it doesn't turn out like I envisioned?!?! That's 14 holes in the wall all for nothing. Ahhh! I'm planning an asymmetrical one, but will it look intentional or like I don't know how to hang plates?! I'm trying to suck and it up and just do it... after all, that's what spackle is for, right?
