Designer tip: How to hang plates on the wall
With the holidays here, it’s time to break out your gorgeous china and treasured heirloom dinnerware pieces. I always have a renewed interest in all things table top with all the entertaining that I do this time of year. There are so many gorgeous dinnerware pieces out there both new and vintage, I always enjoy scooping up some interesting pieces while out gift shopping each year.
But if you want to enjoy eyeing your porcelain lovelies any time of the year, I simply adore a plate wall vignette. Large or small, it’s simply a clever and inexpensive way to add “art” to your walls. With so many interesting colors, patterns, shapes and sizes, a plate wall has the ability to add interest to your walls without distracting from other traditional art pieces in a room.
What is the best way to hang plates on a wall, you say? The answer, my dears, is a little insider secret. Disc invisible plate hangers, available here on Amazon, safely adhere to the back of your plates and give you worry free wall hanging without any damage to the back of your pieces. The adhesive on the disc is activated when wet and then applied to the back of the item. After 24 hours of drying time, you are ready to safely hang on the wall. Simply add warm water to remove the adhesive. Genius!
Thanks goes to my dear friend and neighbor, Christine White of Christine White Style, for sharing this tip with me. Christine has been an endless source of creative inspiration for me ever since I first moved to Charlotte. Dabbling in jewelry making in her bead boutique several years ago eventually led me to pursue my creative passions in interior design. Thank you Christine!
