Let’s recap my hopes + dreams for our living room walls.
Imagine, if you will, that this ladder has gone away:
Bye bye, ladder!
But now what?
Well, let’s envision our TV’s “going away”, too.
Making a long story (slightly) shorter — we could do this:
Nope. Too scared of all those nails. So I/we did this, instead:

And even better, these plates are on a TV wall!
While I have some white ironstone platters,
I also love blue + white plates.
Notice how they’re hung in a symmetrical (traditional) layout.
More traditional + symmetrical happiness:
But how on earth do I do this? Where should I start?

Okay. Wait a minue.
Somebody needs to calm down, ’cause this just got crazy.
Does this mean I am still hopelessly indecisive?
Stay tuned — come back tomorrow.
