Weekend Project.

I've been wanting to make a plate collage on our dining room wall for a few months now. My husband is anti-pictures in every room, so we've had this 7' blank space that has been waiting for a face lift.
The other day I hit the jackpot at Marshall's. A whole new shipment of white dinnerware arrived. I went to work right there, placing plates out all over the floor and $24.00 later we now have a work of art.
Note to self: Mark out the spots on the wall prior to hammering the plate hangers up. I swear I had to shimmy each plate over a hair- which was simply bad planning on my part.
