    Step 1

    After moving into our new home I wanted to fill this big blank wall in our kitchen. After thinking about it for a while I decided to fill the wall with a large plate display.

    I scoured placed like Marshall's, Home Goods, Hobby Lobby, Pier 1, and even Kroger for plates. I came home with way more than I needed but I wanted to lay them out together and figure out which combination looked best together. I finally settled on this:

    Once I had my plates all picked out came the tedious process of getting them on the wall. I traced each plate onto paper and then cut them out and arranged them on my kitchen wall so I could get them just where I wanted them. I was going to be putting a lot of holes in my wall as it was and didn't want to mess up.

    I debated for a while as to what method I wanted to use to hang the plates. I finally settled on using English plate hangers that I bought through amazon. The reviews I read gave me confidence that they did the job well. I didn't want to have any plated come crashing down on me. To use them you simply wet the back of the disc and then apply them to your plate and let dry overnight. The discs are removable too in case you ever change you mind in the future.

    After my discs were nice and secure on the back of each plate I used my paper cutouts on the wall to guide me for the placement of each nail and then I was ready to hang my plates.

    I'll admit the process was a little long and took much more time than I originally anticipated but in the end it was worth it because I'm so pleased with how my display turned out.
