What to do?????????????

I have a problem, I'm sure there is more out there with this problem. I wouldn't go so far as to call it an addiction I like to think of it as a collection.......my problem....Plates, yes plates. Here are just some of my collection that used to hang in the dinning room and sun room...

My problem is that now the dinning room is my bedroom, and I have taken out walls in the new dinning/family room where O where am I to hang all my plates.

These two walls above and below are all the wall space I have....sighhhhhhh. Some nameless person said "why not get rid of them" it's obvious she doesn't like plates, I mean they have come from far and wide, they are part of the family......No way could I just toss them out....
I will find a home for every one of them.

Bathroom update......
All painted and ready for the bath and vanity to go in...I have painted it Dulux Antique white in a oil based gloss. Being a bathroom the gloss will last longer and clean easier. Hopefully later in the week I will have a fully functional bathroom....

But for now I'm of to fit all those plates on that little bit of wall...
Blessings to all

  4. Hello Mandy,

    I collect old plates too, I love them. I keep mine in our old meat safe, but have asked hubby to come up with something so I can display them, needless to say I am still waiting...lol!

    Your bathroom is looking good, cant wait to see the finished photos.


  5. Mandy, I love your plate collection. I have a problem with dinner sets my cupboards are so crammed full of stuff the two boxes of a new dinner set that I put on layby and was going to use for christmas lunch but then didnt have christmas lunch here at home have been sitting my car on the back seat for two weeks as I have no where to put them lol Im going to have to deal with them soon. BTw love your bathroom walls they look fantastic.

  6. It's nice to know that I'm not the only plate collector in this world. I had so many that at one time I finally sold some of them so I would have more cabinet space. I still have more than I need. Your bathroom looks beautiful.
