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.

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?

    1. I painted both sides of the chargers and nope, no odor.

  2. 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 https://amzn.to/2RZ0dTs . It is my affiliate amazon link :)

  3. Looks great!! 2 questions how many chargers did one can of spray paint do? and when you put a plate with hot food on the charger does the plate stick to the charger at all. I've had this problem with my semi gloss painted table.

    1. Hi! Thanks for stopping by! I used 1 can, I had a little left in one can then bought a new one and didn't use the whole thing so I'd guess a little less than one can did all of these. I've used the chargers about 5 times now for holidays and they are still perfect. I didn't have any problem with hot plates though maybe the plate was not hot, only the food? I hope that helps :)

  4. I love these! Great idea. I see sale chargers all the time in wacky colors. Now I won't pass them by...

  5. I have a set of the gold chargers and the silver chargers. I should paint one set, thanks for the idea, I'm thinking on it now.

  6. These look really pretty in your table setting. I'm not a big fan of gold but I do love the hammered paints.

  7. They came out so pretty. I never use chargers but I see them all over the place. Maybe I'll try this cause I also see those sales all the time. What did you do with the underneath part. The natural straw placemats, did you paint them white to get that look?
