Over at Mendez Manor, Nicole has been thinking about the upcoming holidays. She wanted to have something both festive and fun to help create unique tablescapes this holiday season. The solution? These chalkboard painted chargers.
This project began with these plain gold charger plates that Nicole had. (She points out that you can find similar ones at Michael’s for $1 each.) She painted in the center of the chargers with Martha Stewart Crafts black chalkboard paint. “We’re not super fancy here, so I like the casual look that the chalkboard paint brings to my gold charges,” Nicole notes. “They look really good underneath my collection of clear glass plates!” These definitely look like they will be a lot of fun to use when setting a festive table!
Nicole’s tutorial for these plates at Mendez Manor includes lots of helpful information, including how long you can expect the chalkboard surface of these plates to last.
