Make this fun and easy Shiplap placemats to bring some spice to your dinner party!
Have any fancy dinner parties coming up? Or just want to bring a little fun to your dinner table. Well these DIY wooden placemats are sure to have everyone talking about your table setting.
First I started by nailing the 1x3 blocks to the wooden square. I used to quarters to evenly space the blocks apart from each other. Once I nailed the boards to the top I flipped the square over and put about 5 nail holes down each 1x3 block.
After nailing down all the 1x3 boards, I begin filling all the nail holes. After filling the holes, I let the filler dry for about 5/10 min. and I sanded it down.

After sanding, I spray painted the Shiplap placemat with RustOleum Satin in White, feel free to use other colors to really make them pop! I let it dry and my project was complete. It was dry after about an hour but I let it sit for two hours just to make sure it was completely dry.
Once the wooden placemat was done drying, I set it with some dishes and styled it to my liking.
