The idea is about painting a usual charger with chalkboard paint – what can be easier? When it dries, just chalk the name or write some wishes to the guest. Such a charger will add an informal and cozy feel to the table setting, it’s suitable for any parties and weddings.
If you feel like super bright colors, it’s time to take bright acrylic paints. What you need to do is to mix them as you like and cover the charger with this mix – watch a video tutorial in the source to do everything right. Use sheer glass plates over such chargers to add color to the tablescape.
A couple of cheap chargers can be spruced up with some pastel paint to give them a cool modern look. all you need is just some painter’s tape or cover and paints of your choice. The fun part is that each plate in the set can be completely different. With each one slightly mismatching, your table will develop a lot more design interest, forcing your guests to really take notice.
