Was it expensive and was it DIY - Wondering about which tradie I might get to do this or is it really simple enough for a very bad handyman to do?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

8. Display pretty plates. Have a stack of colorful dishes or platters laying around unused? Pick out your favorites and hang them on the wall above your mantel for a colorful display. Start by hanging your largest plate in the center, then arrange the others around it like spokes on a wheel.The Secret to Hanging a Plate Collection
