If you’ve been following along with my blog for a while, you’ll know that I’m a massive Emma Bridgewater fan! As my collection grows, I’ve been trying to think of ideas to have as much as I can on display (much to the hubby’s delight!!).
My latest idea was to create a wall full of plates with some of my favourite pieces. I wanted to get them out of the back of my cupboard and onto display.
I started by sticking together some blank pages the size of the space I wanted to fill.
I then painted the wooden letters with some tester pots of paint. I picked the letters up from Hobbycraft and used a different style for each letter to create more of a feature.
I placed the letters and plates onto the blank page to create the pattern I wanted.
I drew round them all with a pencil.
I then stuck the page up onto the wall.
I used a screwdriver to mark the wall where each plate would go.
I took down the page, and put a wall plug, (it was plaster board) and a screw with washers into the holes marked. The washer was to give the hook on the back of my plate a little more to hold on to (and to settle my nerves!!!).
After lots of research these plate hangers from Amazon came out on top for reliability. I picked up a pack with a variety of sizes.
I then matched the size of the hanger to the plate size and following the instructions on the back to secure them.
Now the nervous part (!!!) … I started to hang the plates onto the screws with washers.
I attached the letters using ‘no more nails’.
And here’s the finished result! It really was as simple as that!
Hope you enjoyed reading, as much as I enjoyed writing!
