Freeform Decorative Plate Wall

Have you ever seen a decorative plate wall? I'm sure you have, they've been around forever.

Have  you ever seen a random or freeform decorative plate wall? I love them! They are kind of like freeform art :o)  I've even seen them going around a corner.

The dictionary definition:
  • not organized or planned in a conventional way
  • encouraged to function or evolve without advance planning
  • spontaneous
  • without restrictions or preconceptions
All of these describe me so how appropriate that I decided to create a freeform decorative plate wall in my house!

Free-form decorative plate wall
I used a bunch vintage, white plates from my collection.


I still want to add more and I found two more dishes that match some of these at a garage sale last weekend. I just need some more plate hangers.


I found these two sweet chairs at a small antique show that my mom and I went to last weekend.


I paid $15 for both of them together, great price I think! I've been wanting to get rid of the ugly chairs that came with this table and go with mismatched chairs. These are a good start!


I fixed up a little vignette in the tray I showed during one of the Treasure Trove Tuesday posts with some vintage bottles and books and a new ampersand I found at TJ Maxx.

  6. I love the way you have placed the plates. They look like they are cascading down from the door. I can't wait to see how it will evolve. And those chairs are also very pretty with their curvy lines. You have given me lots of sweet inspiration.
