Yes, we now have a wall with some plates on it.
It's quite an odd thing to do really isn't it? Stick plates on a wall... but there you go!
This random assortment of plates has been gathering, we had a few up in our old house, then the night before last we just decided to get them up*.
We've been a bit slow at committing nails to our walls... I think when you've lovingly filled and painted walls (or your better-half has) then it takes a few months before you want to bang holes in them. Or is that just us?
We decided on a rough arrangement on the floor, keeping it quite random so it can be added to... then we drew around the plates on to some newspaper and stuck the newspaper on the wall.
Just like so.
Then the plates went up and at the end the newspaper came down... easy peasy.
When I came down to breakfast today I was like 'oh, look at our lovely plate wall' Hugh's response was a definite 'humpf'.
Oh well, you can't please all the people all of the time.
On another note; I've just booked my ticket for the Papermash craft event on Thursday - anyone else going!?
*It actually took two evenings to put them up with an interlude for a trip to the shops to get extra wire plate hangers and picture pins... were never that efficient!
