Ta Ta Ta Daaa....Here it is, the finished project.
Step 5 - is to simply measure the back of your plate for hanger placement, and tack your nail in place.
Honestly, this is just really a lot of trial and error, I find that a few tiny holes in the wall behind an object really don't bother me. If it bothers you to have lots of holes, then you should definitely measure twice & nail once.
Another thing, I started out with the invisible plate hangers that you glue to the back of the plates, but after trying one, I figured out that it is very difficult to line up a plate pattern with a small hook when you only get one shot. Sooo, I took them back and traded them for the traditional plate hangers, and my job was so much easier, and much faster....as there is no 24 hour drying period.
So, what do you think? Is it an improvement?
While I was out looking for my plate hangers the other day, I actually ran across a fabric that I really liked for new curtains. This is actually so disgusting, because I used to have beautiful custom silk drapes that puddled on the floor ever so nicely, but that was before we introduced two new kittens into our house...need I say more?
Here is the window wall before, and a shot of the fabric I've picked. I like this fabric, because it has all of my favorite colors in it, and I really want a new sisal rug with a black border, and I think it will tie in nicely.
stay tuned for more updates. I think it will take my seamstress a couple of weeks to get these made up for me, but I can't wait to get them back and share more pics.
Now I'm off to get everything ready for a sweet 16 (sigh)
*peace & love*
p.s. Fit Friday update --- I did absolutely nothing this week as far as real exercise goes, but I think I more than made up for it with all of the cleaning and rearranging activities.Pin It
