What do these three things have in common?
A wicker place mat
A decorative bird plate
and this wooden charger plate
Well normally put together they would make for one fabulous place setting, but I had something else in mind. Instead of using them for my table, I wanted them for my wall.
I’ve just finished some Board and Batten throughout my entry, hallway and up the stairs. I wanted something different for the top. I didn’t want pictures, I didn’t want metal florals, but these, THESE caught my eye. And since I couldn’t decide on which color to go with, I went with them all!
And down the hallway to the end, is Yellow Bird.
I might be a little unconventional in putting these together the way I did, but when simple works, work it simple! Thread wire through the holes in the wicker, twist and make a heavy duty, secure loop.
I’ve learned that Velcro can be your best friend.
Velcro the backs of your plates, making sure the Velcro lands on the ridge of the back of the plate. There are two sizes of Velcro here, just to show you the difference. The larger in the center is the industrial strength and it’s all you need. Notice how the piece in the middle covers the ridge of the plate on top and bottom.
Stick the plate to the charger and the charger to the place mat, all the same way. I love how they look. All three pieces are from Pier 1.
