While I was out on one of my recent thrift store shopping excursions I came across a stack of gold chargers when inspiration suddenly struck! They would look great on my fall table as mini chalkboards! It was the perfect design solution because they could be used as easy and practical name cards or to add a little quotable inspiration to the table. Plus they are easy to store and better yet the whole project only cost me $2! Since all of my supplies were left overs from other projects.

    I love the idea of painting the chargers...something I had never thought of doing. If the paint comes off easily, then I could change the colors whenever I need or want to.
    Thanks for the brilliant idea! Your table looks lovely!

      @HoneyHomemaker Thank you Honey! I used a chalk marker for the quotes, it wipes of easily with a little spray cleaner or water. So you can change it anytime you want! Thanks for stopping by!

    Love this idea. My "good" dishes are clear Indiana Glass and I think these chargers would be just the ticket for them. The clear ones don't show up very well on a printed tablecloth. I used silver trays one year, but I think I would like the

    I have used the so called ez to remove chalk pens, only to have to repaint with chalk paint after each quote or message has lived out its life.... 1 day or 1 month....didn't matter.
    Terrible experience..

      Hey Dee! After your chalk paint has dried try rubbing a regular pice of chalk over the whole piece then erasing/cleaning it. The small particles left behind will help keep the "ghost image" at bay. I hope that helps!
