The arrival of the holidays also means the means the arrival of guests. This is my guest room in progress. I don't have any before pictures because it was basically a blank room. I began collecting things for this room about eight years ago. I had the fabric that I found for four dollars a yard, the matching sheets, and the plates that I had collected. Everything else I decided to use what I had. I painted the room a pretty french blue to go with the toile and hung blue and white plates for the focal point over the bed. This is where the madness began. Some people could probably hang these just by "eyeballing" it, but not me.
I laid out a big piece of paper, measured, and placed the plates equal distance apart. Then I drew around the plates.
Next I put the hangers on the plates and measured every plate to see how far down the hook should be on the wall and made a mark in the circle.
Then I taped the paper on the wall and made a pencil mark where every hook should go. It was a piece of cake after that.
That's about as far as I've gotten with the room. I will be posting more as I go.
