HOW TO HANG PLATES ON BACKSPLASH
Welcome! So maybe you popped over from Pinterest, maybe you are a regular (muah!) or maybe you just wanted a quick peek at how you can get this fun and interchangeable backsplash decor idea. Whatever the case may be, please read this ENTIRE POST. I promise you will thank me later :-)…
I have a serious obsession with random plates. I buy just one of each that I come across and have built up quite an inventory of onsies over the years. I love mixing them up for a dinner setting or using them as serving platters. I usually find my favorites at HomeGoods or HERE. Then one day I got this crazy idea. Seeing as though I love a good pop of color and pattern AND we have lots of space behind our cooktop, why not hang several on the backsplash? So I went scrummaging around our garage for ideas on how to do so. That’s when I ran across a package of Command hooks I had purchased for our front door. I ran to my local Michaels to grab some plate hangers and voila! Instant, cheap and super easy accent wall in our kitchen!
So here’s where the “read this entire post” begins… First, I re-purchased items to show you what is needed for this project. I had originally purchased white plate hangers at Michaels but also just found these gold ones at Hobby Lobby. Either work great! Also, I used Outdoor Command Hooks originally just because that’s what we had and after using one of these pictured below, I do HIGHLY recommend the Outdoor Command Hooks. For whatever reason, they seem to adhere better than the regular ones. Also, HUGE DISCLAIMER… I cannot guarantee that this DIY will work on your backsplash as well as it did ours. Our backsplash is clear glass tile which is not pourous like some travertine and stone tile so those may not adhere as well. Make sure to test the hooks with your cheap china FIRST before trying out your Sunday best. And finally, I am not sure how easily these can be removed from your backsplash. We have had one fall randomly but other than that, I have not attempted to remove the hooks.
Outdoor Command Hooks
Attach plate hanger to each plate wrapping it from top to bottom very securely.
Open Command hook package and adhere tape according to instructions to the hook and then to your backsplash. Push it down very hard against backsplash to adhere securely.
