I have been collecting plates to decorate my kitchen with for the past two years. We have vaulted ceilings, which create an awkward triangle space above our cabinets that has always felt like it needed something. Even though my collection isn't complete I thought it was time to put the ones I have so far up. After looking into how much plates hooks cost and how most of them are visible I decided to improvise. Since these plates aren't worth much to anyone but me, I decided use some E6000 and a paperclip to do the job. I put felt on the back while it was still wet to make it stronger. So far it's done a good job.
This is my favorite plate. Ryan got it for me two Christmases ago. It reminds me of our house.
Mounting plates can be easy, just give it a triangle!
