Are you using them as chargers, because I’ve bought a few of those for our cocktail hour and they are quite large, too large to be used as chargers.

Honestly, they don’t really look or feel as cheap as the $1 they are, so we are leaving them as is.. although, we are considering turning them into tiered trays [probably using candle sticks].

@springbride23:  I personally think they would be too large, maybe our plates are just on the small side?

The dollar tree actually did have charger plates for sale over christmas for $1 each… although they are out of stock now, maybe check craigslist to see if anyone is selling them?

Your idea works great.  I did the same thing for some serving pieces.  I think 13″ is ok if your dinner plates are full size 10″.  If they are smaller, keep looking for a smaller size making sure the inner ring does not show when your plate is placed on them.  Painting the underside works very well as long as you protect them from getting scratched when you pack them. They still look glossy!
