I recently saw a post on DaisyMaeBelle about chalk painting chargers and I knew I wanted to try this. The very next day, while shopping at Sur La Table, I discovered some damaged chargers in the sale bin. Each set of four had been reduced twice and was down to six dollars. So I spent twelve dollars for all eight! They had exactly the kind of "French" scalloped edge that I wanted. They were also shiny, plastic, scratched and looked so bad that I felt like I had to explain to the clerk why I wanted to buy them...
I am so glad that I did! I painted them with Annie Sloan Old White (three coats), waxed them with clear wax, and then finished them off very lightly with the brush on dark wax. I wanted to keep them very light.
I can't wait to set the table with them!
