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.

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.
