I've wanted a wall of plates ever since I saw this one on Lena Corwin's blog.
Here's how I did it:
Jungle Jim's, and the other three I found on clearance at Anthropologie. (Does anyone else have to go straight to the sale table in the back when they go in that place?

I just couldn't resist all these bright colors since I can't paint my apartment walls.
Design Sponge also has a helpful video about hanging plates that you can see here.
I also wanted to show you another little DIY I made for my kitchen a long time ago, my vintage record sleeve organizers:
