Kick off your spring decorating by dressing up a blank wall with painted plates, as demonstrated by H&H style editor Sarah Hartill. Discover an easy weekend project that injects bursts of colour into a room without breaking the bank. By using plain white porcelain dishes that you paint yourself, you can choose any palette you like. Plus, mix new and vintage plate shapes for an eclectic look that will suit any style of room.
