Plate Art.

Gypsy Purple Home

I have been meaning to decorate a wall in my house with plates like this for awhile now. Growing up, I remember my mom hanging plates on the wall, and at the time I thought it looked very ‘country’, but hanging them in unexpected clusters like this makes it feel whimsical and modern. It’s also a cheap way of filling your walls with interesting ‘art’, especially if you collect your plates from thrift stores and flea markets. What do you think? Are you a fan of plates as wall art, or is it too ‘old fashioned’ for you?

    I love plate art especially the last one! My friend used something similar to these to hang her collection. They are invisible and don’t put any stress on the plates like the wire ones.

      Hey Rachel, I have tried those sticky things (maybe not the exact same brand though) and I got scared because the stickiness seemed to be weakening… But I have had plates fall and break from the wire hangers. Maybe I’ll give the sticky ones another try 🙂

    Ladies …you know I love plates in a room…kitchens mostly!…My collection is not clustered as it should be but that is in the works!…I only use damaged plates (who cares if they are chippy!)..and I only use wire hangers…I know they are terrible for “in good condition” plates & saucers…but I have had some hung for over 20 years….
    Love these images Kevi..Thanks for sharing!
