Wood Stain Plate Chargers After Wood Stain Plate Chargers Before

Add a rustic touch to your table with DIY pride and stain wood plate chargers for your guests. Wood stain is easy to apply and enhances the wood's natural beauty. 

  1. Lightly sand the wood plate chargers with #220 grit sandpaper to remove any rough spots, then wipe clean with a tack cloth.
  2. Using a lint-free cloth, apply a generous amount of wood stain to the wood charger. Wait 2-3 minutes before wiping off excess stain in the direction of the wood grain.  
  3. Set the plate charger aside and let dry for 1 hour per instructions on the can. 
  4. An optional top coat of polyurethane can be applied to protect your wood chargers from scratches.
