Takin’ Charge

Isn’t spray paint the best thing since sliced bread?
Honestly, what did DIYers do before spray paint?
What I’m sharing with you is not rocket science.
Just real quick, easy, and so easily changed.
8 dollar store charger plates that you’ve had for ages
1 can of spray paint
that’s all folks!!
These silver chargers have been around for awhile,
and like some of us, they are starting to show their age. 😉
But after 2 coats of “Hammered Copper”…
they will be perfect for my Thanksgiving table plans.
For the price of a can of spray paint, I have a set of 8 “new” charger plates.
For the price of another can of spray paint,
 can paint them again and have another “new” set for my Christmas table! 
How easy is that?

Pamela Gordon - This is a great idea. I never see the colour I want at the Dollar store but never thought of painting them. Thanks for the tip Tanya!

Meredith - Great idea! I’ve seen this done with chalkboard paint too. I just might give it a try.

A Walk in the Countryside - I’ve done this before! I painted mine pink! I’ve been collecting some from yard sales and have seen some recently that were painted to look like tarnished silver that I plan on trying.

Babs - Your chargers look fab with the hammered copper. Isn’t it amazing how the “hammered” part just appears? Great job on the chargers…perfect for Thanksgiving. I have some gold chargers which I’ve never used…hmmmm. :)
