Recycled Wall Plates

July 15, 2015


It’s been awhile since Wilson and I completed any real updating to our little apartment, but this past weekend we decided to be adults and do adult things. Like, do laundry. And change the air filter.

And — hang plates on wallsThe pinnacle of maturity. You know you are an adult when you think, instead of using this to for food, let’s hang this plate on a wall. 

Remember these white plates from my master bedroom wall in Charlotte? I bought them for $5 a piece at Sleepy Poet, my long lost Queen City BFF. They’ve been stuck under my bed for the past year because I couldn’t decide where to hang them.

But I found a place. They now flank a map in our living room. And I have to say, they look like they belong.

 I love symmetry and these plates satiate my OCD in the best way possible.



And because I liked the way I’d arranged my coffee table on this particular day, here’s a photo of that too.

So, what do you have in your house that you can recycle to use again? If you buy things you love, you’ll always find a place to put them – like here at https://www.customearthpromos.com. Even $5 white plates.

    Mama (aunt val) has always said, “Brooke, use what you’ve got.” I love the plates! Yes, little one, afraid to say, but you’re old now. Plates on walls are a sign of true adulthood!
