DIY Matte Hammered Charger Plates for the Holidays

       I found these chargers on sale for a pack of 6
but the only color available was gold leaf.

They were great but I'm not a big fan of gold. 

As a matter of fact there is not a gold thing in this whole house. 

Not a gold knob, gold jewelry, no gold!! 

So I decided then and there to paint them.

I am a huge fan of black and white so hammered black it is. 

My dishes are white so this color will be perfect... and it will be slightly textured. 

I started out by laying them out on a large piece of cardboard on the lawn.

Just a note... You may notice that it is fall right now and there are tons of leaves... not the best place or time to be spray painting. 

I was lucky... when I ran out of paint half way through and had to go get more, there were still no leaves on my plates.

Very luckily!

These chargers were looking pretty darn good already!

When they were almost dry I brought the chargers inside so nothing would happen to them until they were completely dry.

The next step is to try them out with my dishes so they will be all ready for Thanksgiving dinner.

  1. They look great! 2 questions: 1. Did you leave the backs gold (don't see why not, but just wondered), and 2. Don't they have a little spray paint odor?

  2. Hi Thanks so much for visiting! First they have black backs... perfect! Secondly the only time they had a spray paint smell was when they were drying. The smell has gone away :) Food does not touch them either, they are for decorative use.

  3. They turned out great! 2 questions: How many coats of paint did it take & where did you get your round placemats?

    1. Hi! I gave them about 2 coats of spray paint and the placemats came from here . It is my affiliate amazon link :)
