The breaking idea IS totally cool, I can see where that would look good, but unfortunately, this plate is unbreakable! It's metal! Not sure what kind, though. Thanks for all your great ideas!

Whoops! Hehehe. Sorry. Couldn't tell that from the picture. In that case, centerpiece. Or maybe to hold toiletries in the bathroom?

i don't know if someone already posted this, but you could try making a clock out of it.  you could either decoupage your own numbers, or buy vinyls or wooden numbers etc.  i guess you'd have to figure out how to drill a hole in the center though...just a suggestion.

I love the candle centerpiece idea!  You could add a mirror on the bottom.

I think it's lovely the way it is - put a hanger on the back and hang it on the wall!

OK, less boring ideas - put a round mirror in the middle and hang it on the wall.

Or get one of those big 3 wick candles and use it as a centerpiece.

I found a cool plate at the thrift store yesterday - it has a picture of a church or castle on it.  

Anyway, I'm going to collect some more decorative plates and make them into stepping stones, using a concrete mold.  If you have a garden, that could be an idea.  

Here are some directions:

I like the idea of making a mosaic in the middle of the plate, too.

I use plates like that (esp metal ones) as saucers for all my potted plants.  My landlady is super anal about having any plants touching the balcony.   If they plate is big, you can fit a number of small plant pots on it, and it's easier to move them around to water, etc.

What about using it as a frame...decoupage a pic inside it..I'm actually not sure whether that would look ugly

Just a thought

if it's deep enough, why don't you fill it with water (just a couple of inches) and put some floating candles in it.

if it's not very deep, you could fill it with sand and some stones and use it as a zen garden, or just place the candles on top of the sand as a center piece for the coffee table
