Chalkboard Painted Plates

We have this little space in our kitchen nook that is pretty empty.
The only thing in our nook corner is a picnic basket that our daughter likes to sometimes use as a stepping stool to get to our kitchen bench. :)

Since there was a little something missing on the walls, I decided to get creative and paint some old plates we barely used with chalkboard paint. I also hot glued some screen door patches (yes, you read that right!) to the backs of the plates with wire so they would hang from the wall.
Hey! I am a fan of using what you have around your home to decorate and that is why I went with the screen patches and wire. :)

Here is the blank wall we started with:
 Kind of plain, right?
Well, not for long!!

 Any Gator fans out there?!
Don't worry, these plates were already cracking and no longer good to use for dinner plates, so they had to "go." But we have plenty of other Gator memorabilia around the house!!

How do you decorate with plates?

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. What a great idea to use plates. Thanks for sharing. That wall looks so good now - you were right - it was bare!

  2. It's amazing what a little addition can do, huh?! :)


  3. Hi Stephanie,
    What a great idea! I really like what you have done with your plates. Very cute and creative! Thank you for sharing at my HOME and have a lovely weekend.


  4. this is a clever idea! Looks marvelous, Stephanie! I do appreciate you sharing with Home and Garden Thursday,

  5. Oh, my word. This is brilliant!! What a great way to re-purpose those old plates!! I love all the "EAT" signs, but this one really takes the cake. Thank you so much for linking it to Grace at Home--I featured you this week!

  6. LOVE this--this has inspired me to use all those plates I have stored away! Go Gators!! We live in Buckeye country (yes, Urban Meyer is our coach) so it can be hard to explain the gators in our front yard and orange and blue everything!

  7. Awesome! Thanks so much ladies!! :) And thank you for the feature, Richella!
