Plates can be an inexpensive and beautiful way to fill a blank wall. My grandmother recently gave me a box of blue and white ironstone dishes and platters, which inspired my interest in plate walls, along with the big blank wall that stared at me while I ate my cereal. The plates don't have to be anything special though - I always see cute dishes at tj maxx or even melamine ones at Target that I don't buy because I don't "need" them (though when has that ever stopped me). Now I have the buying justification I needed - it's art! Here's some plate wall inspiration for you.

Glamorous plates (ps - I love this room and I can see some major DIY potential here, have you seen Alison's DIY sunburst mirror? Genius!)
