Thrifty Thursday Find: January 16, 2014

Not sure what to do with plates that look too fancy to eat food off of? Arranging vintage plates on a wall in any room can be used as elegant decor instead of using them for meals. Our Royal Worcester Plate at Treasure Hunters can be paired with other plates of the same vintage style to create a new look in your home. The image below demonstrates how you can transform a blank wall into a scene from a french country cottage. Follow these tips to successfully mount your vintage plates.


Step 1: Trace the plates & cut circles onto recycled paper.
Step 2: Arrange paper circles on the wall; this assures you will be happy with your arrangement when it’s time to adhere your plates to the wall. Play around with a few different layouts to see which is your ideal set up. Use painters tape to easily remove them without damaging the wall or the paint.
Step 3: Apply hot glue to the back of the plate.
Step 4: Stick a large metal paperclip to the hot glue: make sure it is sturdy and can be held by the paper clip.
Step 5: Use Command Hooks; place them directly above the paper circles. These hooks do not require any drilling into your wall and can come off easily.
Step 6: Mount paperclips onto the hooks and enjoy!
