If Walls Could Talk

So I have a big empty space in my kitchen just waiting for something large and fantastic. It is actually one of the first things you see when you walk in the house so it has to be awesome.
I have three ideas right now for this space.
#1 A plate wall. I see this as being my most expensive option considering I own no plates for this collection. I’d have to start from scratch. Here are some inspiration pictures:

#2 Some sort of chalkboard framed. I really like this option but I HATE writing on chalkboards. Just thinking about it makes me cringe. And although they do make dry-erase board paint I just don’t think it has the same effect.

#3 I would do some sort of photo collage. This would be fun and give me a chance to change it up a bit with new pictures.

What do you think? Vote for your choice on the poll on my sidebar. If you think of any other awesome idea for a blank wall in a kitchen let me know.

    i'm voting for pictures. i have the same feeling about chalkboards, and plates look dangerous.

    The chalk boards framed are way cute! You will have to come into my work and see all of the mirrors that we have with gauty frames, they reminded me of your inspiration pics. Looks like your house is going to be to die for. I might have to come and peak sometime. 🙂

    I voted for the plates. I have never been a fan of plates before-ridiculous collectors plates that you never use–but these "designer" plates are cute–and I like that it is something that only works in the kitchen (where as the photo collage could be in the living room/hallways/etc). To make it fit the budget couldn't you get some different sized white plates and do some crafty painting?? if you were in a creative mood, that is 🙂
