New Acquisitions March 4, 2014 Home Decor, Our House, Thrift Store Finds 3 Comments 2854 Every time I’m in a second hand store or estate sale, I always keep my eyes out for things to add to my gallery walls. I love finding unique pieces to put on the wall, something that I may not be able to find anywhere else. So of course it’s all a game of luck! So you can imagine my excitement after months and months of striking out when I found a new plate for my plate wall in the dining room! If you remember, the plates represent parts of our life: Washington DC (where we met), Gettysburg (near Mike’s family), and of course a Boxer for our little girl. Now we have our home and my hometown, Asheville. To hang them, I use Strong Stick adhesive to attach one of those picture hangers with teeth. It seems to work pretty well as long as I let it set 24 hours before hanging. Do any of you collect plates? How do you hang them? At the same estate sale, I also found this handmade wood carving of a Boxer. Or maybe it’s wood etching? I’m not exactly sure, but I thought it was pretty neat and added it to the gallery wall at the base of our stairs. You know- bear, deer, Boxer. Obvi. 3 Responses Paul @ Far Infrared Heaters March 4, 2014 I’m really fond of this, it seems to capture your life quite well. Also, that boxer is adorable! Reply Dee Williamson March 18, 2014 Those are some great finds! Love your gallery wall. I’ve always wanted one but never could commit to it. Reply Jamie October 13, 2014 I got some decorating plates in our living rooms but usually I hang them with nails in the wall. I thought about using strong stick adhesive but from my last experience you either “destroy” your wall or the plate might fall off.
