Chalkboard Plate Inspired by Pinterest

I’m working on a plate wall in my kitchen and as soon as I saw these chalkboard plates on Pinterest I knew I had to make them.

The hardest part was finding a plate or platter that was the size I wanted because I wanted it to be larger than a dinner plate.

After looking around for a large white platter, I finally decided to buy this charger from Pier 1 and paint it.

I sanded it, primed it, and then painted it white.  When that was all dry, I painted the center with chalkboard paint.

Another quick and easy project inspired by Pinterest.  Oh, how I love Pinterest!!
