Find Bonus Wall Space Using Shutters For Your Vintage Decorative And Souvenir Plates

Are You Running Out Of Wall Space?

You can find new "wall" space for your decorative and collectible plates by transforming several old shutters into a practical make shift "wall". All you need is some hooks and plate hangers and you are good to go.

I like the way these stained shutters ( from Tree House Art And Antiques) look with a variety of different plates including souvenir china and clear Depression Era plates. Mixing up the types of plates and colors makes for an interesting exhibit.

Another idea is to paint the shutter a soft pastel color and to hang your "Shabby Chic" plates with softer floral designs and dainty patterns.
