PLATE WALL!

So I have been collecting plates for MONTHS, trying to create a little "color" in my kitchen.

To my surprise yesterday, I got the last couple of plates, and was able to complete my wall. I AM THRILLED!

So you might ask, how does one do a plate wall? First, look up Google Images, and type in PLATE WALL. It will give you LOTS of really awesome pictures. Next, you pick a color scheme, then you look, & Look, & LOOK! EVERYWHERE! Some of the plates were as cheap as $.50 others were $8.00. It was REALLY fun to do. Hope you love it as much as I do!

It's so cool & I'd love to do the same but please share what you use to adhere the plates to the wall? Is it mirror tape {double sided & quarter inch thick foam?} as it doesn't look like you have any metal plate holders/springs over the sides holding them onto a screw at the back. Thanks so much - they look beautiful...
