Plates make great wall art but only if they are nice to look at. I’m not talking your Grandmothers collector plates, you know the ones, with Norman Rockwell scenes or cheesy souvenir plates from the one time she went to the big city.
I’m talking about interesting plates, full of pattern or colour or design, like these Anthropologie plates that I found and framed
I had a credit for Ikea so I only had to pay for one more frame, making the entire purchase more doable.
The set is Anthropologie’s From The Deep dinnerware, each side plate is $14(US), my set of four for $14.99(CDN)!
I used Ribba frames and flipped the matting over as it is a bright white rather than a creamy white. I used 12x12 scrapbook paper, taped in the opening, then double sided tape to adhere the entire thing to the frame backing
Finally, I glued the plate to the scrapbook paper using Gorilla glue.
Aligning the frames to have equal distance from one another was a bit of job for this math challenged ding dong
Looking at Anthropologies site, I think these would also be fun and colourful.
Or use plates that have a great shape, like this fish plate that I posted about here
Off to see what treasure awaits for me and the thrift store today.
