Hang Plates, Hang Mugs, Hang Pitchers

Here’s how my dishware wall art came to be. Ever since I found it, this kitchen (which I mentioned in a past post) with pictures of plates instead of actual plates has been in my head:
Found via Bloesem blog. What a great new take on both a plate wall AND a picture wall!
Earlier this spring, Randi showed a mug poster on her picture ledge:
I combined Roel’s idea with Randi’s poster. I also decided to keep my version to a smaller scale, like Randi. I found images of glassware, mugs, and pitchers online, and played around with them. My first collage looked like this:
I wasn’t sure I liked all of it, thought, so I set the collage as my computer wallpaper and stared at it for a few weeks. That helped a lot. I was able to get rid of the pieces I didn’t really like. Then I broke the images into four blocks of four, already shown in my sneak peek, and printed them.
I also decided to re-use my typography art frames. It made sense to keep the frames in my office since we don’t have wall space to speak of in our kitchen. And here they are:
I’m mostly happy, but not entirely. There are things I like and dislike both in my first collage and in this version. I need to live with it to see whether I want a change. For now, they’re good enough.
