Yesterday, I was at Target again (go ahead, gasp with mock surprise), and spotted a new plate... on clearance! (Stopping to take a bow.) It was a larger size, and I thought it might be just what I needed to shake this wall up a little.
I tend to be a little "safe" in my decorating style, and so (of course), the first thing I did was hold the larger plate in the middle of the two smaller ones, sizing up the situation. Still kind of boring -- and took up more room (top to bottom) than I wanted.
I thought of my Pinterest Board "WALL ARRANGEMENTS" -- and I headed over there to take a look around. Pinterest has a way of making you think you can do anything. Sheesh, it's a good thing people don't post things like jumping off bridges! Or maybe they do, and I shouldn't do that search. Anyways, I digress.
What I ended up with was this:
The pictures aren't great because it's a gray and snowy day around here -- but you get the idea.
OH, I KNOW. It's not dangerous or bold or anything. But, you have to admit it's a little more random and unexpected. It might even cause some people (who thought our bed in the corner was... a little too unexpected) to look away -- but I love it. It makes me smile every time I look at it. And I've been looking at it a lot. It's kind of been my "SQUIRREL" all morning! LOL
Okay, take one more look... side by side. DEFinitely more visually interesting, right?
You know what else? It's so random that I could probably even add more plates as the mood strikes me.
Yep. I'm really taking a walk on the wild side people.
Have you stepped out of your comfort zone recently, and been pleasantly surprised with the results? Tell me about it!
