Dining room plate wall

I have this funny little wall in my dining room where are stairs are.  I have never really been sure what to do with that wall because it is so awkward.  After searching the interwebs (aka Pinterest), I decided to do a plate wall, but not your Granny’s plate wall…sorry Granny!  I wanted it to be fun, current and eclectic. 

And here she is, in all her glory…the plate wall!  Sorry for the really bad iphone picture!

Most of the plates were found while thrifting at places like Goodwill and Salvation Army.  I picked up the iridescent white Carnival glass plate when I went to Vintage Market Days last weekend.

Others I picked up at Target and JCP (the Happy Chic line by Jonathon Adler).

Do you have a weird wall in your house?  What have you done to dress it up?
