I've been lazy. At least computer lazy. I've got all these pictures from my last trip edited and ready to post about. But like I say, I've been lazy.
You might remember that one of my lifetime quests is to get a good picture of the plate valance at my sister's house. I failed. Again. After I posted a picture of it after my last trip I got a question from Kim asking details about how the plates were hung.
I couldn't remember. I talked my sister into creating this plate valance and told her how to hang it. That was years ago. And dang if I couldn't remember what I told her.
Kim, this picture is for you! It is as I assumed I would have told her. Hang the plates for the back layer with a nail and a plate hanger. Take a piece of scrap wood and attach it to the wall in the spaces where you want your upper level plates to raise above the others. Then put a nail in the raised wood and hang your plate. It's as simple as that.
These plates are hung with regular old plate holders. This method would also work with the Disc plate holders. But at 5 bucks a pop, it would cost $125 to hang this valance. That's a lot.
a couple of days ago I found a tutorial that said you could get this
same staggered plate hanging effect by hanging the raised plate from the
plate above it. This doesn't seem like a good idea to me. But it's
totally up to you...
I'm thinking that until I get some advanced picture taking skills under my belt I will quit taking pictures of this valance.
Make something wonderful today!
