Master Bedroom Plate Wall

Number 10 on 10 Tasks in 10 Days Challenge: Design or create something for Master bedroom wall.

I finally finished a plate wall, but not the one I’ve been talking about for the last 5 months. I’ve collected over 25 plates to put together the one in the dining room. Way too many! Some weren’t going to fit in with the color or style I was going for, so I decided to use them in the bedroom. The bedroom colors are black, white and green.

And here’s the blank wall. It’s above our TV. Yes, we have a TV in our bedroom and no, we’re not going to take it out. Sometimes it’s my only escape from watching cartoons or playing Wii.

This is the plan I worked out on the table in the basement (craft room). The black and white wasn’t going to work in the dining room but it will be perfect in the bedroom.

I used the Command picture hanging strips. The same ones I used on the Family letter wall. The Letter Wall has been up for a few months now and nothing has fallen off so I think we’re good.

You just stick the 2 pieces together. Take the backing off one side and stick it the the plate. Take the backing off the other side and stick it to the wall. Hold it in place for 30 seconds and you’re good. Read all the instructions, so you have a good hold.

Okay, so you know how I don’t like to measure anything if I don’t have too. Well, I still don’t and I didn’t, but I did enlist some help from Hubby with eyeballing everything. Here’s the first plates we hung up. I started from the bottom and worked up, mainly because I wanted the bottom one close to the top of the TV. 

Here’s 4 more. Hubby was getting worried at this point because of the spacing. I don’t know why. I had them all laid out on the bed the way they were going on the wall.

And here it is all finished. Ta-Da! What do you think? I’m very pleased. It fits in great with the rest of the bedroom. I had all the plates and strips on hand, so I’m considering it free. You can see the top of the TV in this picture and the top plate is level with the top of the door frame.

Yay! 3 tasks down, 7 to go.

That turned out lovely. I am also collecting plates for a makeover in my dining room and plan on doing black and white. Great minds think alike.

Wow, so those things really work! Cool! Love the plates.

I like it! I would never have thought to do a plate wall in a bedroom.

I have seen those stickies on several blogs lately. I haven’t been able to find them in person yet though. I use the hooks and would love these.

I love it!! I just eyeballed my plates too when I recently redid our bedroom. I love yours!! Saw your link on DIY showoff. :)

Oh and we have a tv in our room also, and it’s not coming out! Gotta have it.

I love the plate idea! I hate measuring items too and eyeball it. It drives my boy crazy and he’ll eventually come over and measure everything out for me, lol.

Kim@cheapchichome June 28, 2010 at 8:45 am

I looks wonderful. I really like the colors of your bedroom, Leanne.

Kaysi @ Keeping It SImple June 28, 2010 at 10:17 am

Those are awesome! It really adds to the wall!

I love that you didn’t have to make holes in your wall and the arrangement came out very nice!

Your post makes me want to get some of my mom’s old plates out and hang.

Very nice…..thanks!

I love the picture hanger things. The walls in my house had become swiss cheese from moving things all the time. I finally discovered those a while back…they are amazing! Your plates look beautiful. I haven’t tried them on plates yet but now I will! Thanks for sharing.

That looks GREAT! I’ve been thinking about trying those Command strips. Maybe I’ll give it a try. Looove the black and white plates. I’ve been collecting them for mhy dining room/kitchen. Now I need to go check out your letter wall.

I love the colors you’ve chosen! This looks great! It inspires me to get my plate wall up in my kitchen (I need more plates though…
