Now...the dining room on the other hand...I've known what I wanted there for a while now! Here is the dining side of this room, in all it's sparse glory. I figure we will go about filling it in slowly.
If you remember our last house, I hung blue and white plates in our kitchen, and I have had them wrapped and waiting to get another chance to shine. I took the time to trace templates on to plain old computer paper, and I marked where the hanger was on the back of each plate as well. Then I went ahead and taped them up on the wall to see if I liked it.
I sent the above picture to Matt to make sure he liked it - I didn't hear back to I assumed that was a go :)
You can't see it too well in the very boring pic to the right, but we did use anchors. After seeing just how crumbly plaster can be we didn't want to take too many chances on hanging plates!
Next up it was just a matter of ripping the paper off of the wall and hanging the plates!
Far from finished, but also far from where we started! Woo-hoo for progress!
Next up - window treatments! (man...the fun just never stops around here, huh?)
