OoTB: Decorate with Plates

As a newbie to Twitter this week, I have come across so many amazing new blogs and ideas! It’s an incredible platform for all of us DIY bloggers and I have already had lots of conversations with lovely people.

My inspiration for Out of the Box this week comes from a new blog I’m following called, Denise in Bloom. She tweeted out a few posts about using plates as decorative wall decor and I fell in love! I’m getting really inspired and excited to try this. My family and I are starting the planning process for my grandmother’s estate sale in April and I’m sure we will come across a ton of great, vintage plates!

Here is the project that Denise in Bloom finished in her own home.

It’s so fresh and unique. I just love it, especially with Spring right around the corner!

Here are a few other images to get your mind reeling about plates on a wall!


So simple and elegant! You probably have vintage white plates lying around in your buffet.
