I was itching for a creative project the other day and I decided to spruce up some silver charger plates that I have. I purchased these chargers from Target around the holidays. The thought was they could go under my china dinner plates since they have a silver rim. Unfortunately the chargers weren't very shiny and they don't match how dressy the china is. I decided the take them out of storage and see what I could do with them. This is what I came up with.
I took my leftover chalkboard paint (from the wine walls) and carefully painted the rims of the chargers. I used a foam brush and it took 2 coats to get a streak free chalkboard effect.
Now that they are fully dried I can experiment with fun ways to use them! I think they are a cute way to liven up any party food display, or a unique way to make place settings at a dinner party! I am really happy with the finished product!
