After new lighting, new curtains and new wainscoting something was still missing in our dining room. I absolutly love my Crate and Barrel Dubois mirror knock-offs that were hung over our bar cabinet, but they weren't in scale with the room.
See what I mean? Just to small for that huge, blank wall.
So, I headed back to Savers and walked out with 4 full bags-
which contained a whole bunch of these-
The best part was that the whole pile cost just $8!
I ran all the dishes through the dishwasher and then laid them out on the floor to find an arrangement that I liked.
(Charlie likes to check everything out first :)
I grabbed a whole bunch of 3M Picture Hangers-
and got started-
I started with the middle plates and then just eyed it. It's not perfectly symmetrical, but I think that adds to the charm.
A close up of the plates-
Since they were all purchased at a thrift store, they do not match. I just choose plates in similar shades of whites and cremes.
I'm loving the mix of old and new in our dining room. It's finally starting to look like a finished room.
Hope everyone has a lovely week! -Suzanne
