The plate wall in the dining room keeps growing as I find new plates to add, but each time I add a plate to one side of the wall, I feel like I have to add a plate to the other side of the wall to balance things.
Over the holidays, I was adding a new plate to one side of the wall, and felt like I needed a balancing plate on the other side. That was when I came up with this idea. I grabbed a plate that I had picked up at a yard sale for .25 cents and a black Sharpie. It all happened so quickly, I didn’t even take a before picture. I doodled on half of the plate. It was kind of fun and care free. If it turned out bad, I was out .25 cents. But I liked how it turned out.
So it ended up on the plate wall.
I have room for a few more, and then *gasp* I’ll have to stop collecting them.
