A bunch of plates

I bought these at Goodwill for 25 -50 cents a piece.

I've been wanting to do something over my kitchen cabinets, but didn't want it to be cluttery, so I decided to try some plates. I saw this post from the Nester before I went out and bought 13 $2 plate hangers. Thank you, Nester. So, I did this:

Yep, I hot-glued paper clips on the backs of the plates. There is a possibility that the paper clips won't hold, but if they don't and the plates fall and break, I've only lost a quarter!

I love the way it turned out. I like how you can see the plates peeking out above the cabinets.

I'm posting to Rhoda's party!

The plates look really nice up there. I've been trying to find a reason to buy a bunch of white plates. I definitely could do this above my cabinets. Thanks for stopping by my blog! :)

The plates look great. I hope the paperclips work, as that is a cheap way to go, for sure.

I love the GW in Murfreesboro. Is that the one you shop at? I don't get there often, but when I can, I love to go. The one in Lewisburg is also great. I don't know how far that is from you.

Your plates look great thanks so much for sharing.

What a good idea...using the paperclips. I will have to try that.

Just wondering if the hot-glued paper clipped plates have stayed up .....? It certainly would be a LOT cheaper than wire hangers or discs, but I'm afraid that over time my plates will come crashing down! Have you had that problem?

Autumn, it's been almost a year, and they are all still hanging! Hot glue rocks!
