I have the platter hanging over my stove. You can't tell in the picture, but it's pretty big.
This bowl is Spode too....and it was crazy expensive. That was a gift from the hubby years ago.
I have four smaller (dinner size) plates that I have hung on the wall in a gallery wall behind my kitchen table.
I hate the off center light fixture.....which I ramble on about in this post. And I SO wish there was a better place to put the trash can....but alas there just isn't.
Funny thing is I have had this gallery wall up for a pretty long time, well before it became an "in" thing to do (ditto for the plates on the wall). And you know what? I STILL love it just as much as I did when I first hung it. I think it could stand a few pictures switched out and a few new frames, but I do love it :). The plans for this space are to add crown molding and then add some wainscoting across the wall under the gallery wall.....and not to mention fixing up the table and getting new chairs, and a new chandelier.
Here are some more shots of the gallery wall. All of the pictures are black and whites of my babies.
My boys when they were little.
You can see the true wall color in this shot below....it's a very very light almost white blue grey. I don't know what color it is, because I mixed it up myself with a couple of test pots of darker colors and a big gallon of white paint. I LOVE it though. It ended up being my favorite paint color in the house.
I have curtains framing out the entrance to my kitchen and you can see them in this shot.
I also have plans to remove single upper cabinet you see in this shot and put up open shelves....just in that spot, but that's a long way down on the priority list.
Here's what was happening when I pushed the table out of the way to get a decent shot of the wall.
and then she dumped her cheerios all over the floor.
I love motherhood :)
Anyways, that's my little black and white gallery wall. Hope everybody has a great day and I'll be back soon with the planters I'm building :)
