an empty wall…

Unfortunately, our house doesn’t offer a lot of opportunities for wall art. The entire rear wall is mostly windows and the rest tends to be small bits of angled wall interrupted by doors or stairs. Our one large wall is the one I stenciled (shown here) and has a simple mirror to break up the busy pattern.

Recently, we moved around some furniture in order to better showcase this beautiful Amish dry sink we got from my husband’s grandmother.

We had used it upstairs as a changing table but felt like that kept it waaay too hidden for something this great. So, we moved it downstairs into our dining/kitchen area and now right above it is a huge empty wall.

As soon as I saw it, my wheels started turning…what would I put there? Something wooden/antique? Framed artwork? A shelf for seasonal items? I love gallery walls, but already have one up the stairs – evidenced here.

Then…I remembered seeing an idea while back and wishing I had a spot for it – a plate wall!

I love the vintage look and feel like it could really mesh with our modern farmhouse style. So, I started browsing around the web for some inspiration and found these:

image sources here, here, here & here

I can’t wait to get started – but this is definitely going to be a work in progress as I watch for plates at thrift stores and slowly build a (cheap) collection that will work. I checked Goodwill today and found nothing that was even remotely cute. This might take me even longer than I had expected! Once I have something to show – I’ll share some pics and prices.

My one dilemma is this: my uber-symetrical brain loves the more organized version, but I feel like the whimsical version that travels up the wall might be a better fit for the shape of my available space. Thoughts? Concerns? Suggestions?
