Thrifty Thursday: New Plate Vignette

I have been wanting to jazz up the space above my dining room hutch, but wasn't quite sure what to do.  I've seen all these lovely plate walls and vignettes, so I headed to Goodwill and the Dollar Store to find me some plates!

This is what I came up with:

 I actually shopped at home first before heading to the stores.  
The only plates that I had to use were the 2 blue ones:

The plain white ones came from the Dollar Store, and the rest came from Goodwill!

So I was able to change this (blah):
 Into this!!! For only $15

  1. That looks awesome, Therena! I repinned it and had to come see. :)

  2. What have you found, is the best way to hang your plates?

  3. That is a really beautiful plate display and for $15 fantastic! Can I ask a dumb question, how do the plates get put up on the wall?

  4. makes a great impact above the hutch. The colors works well together, and for $15 that is absolutely fantastic

  5. Super cute! I love the colors in the vignette! I need to start collecting so to create my own. Thanks for the inspiration!
