Board Game Anyone ?

Take 1 plain wooden coffee table.
Give 11yo son a mouse sander and a quick lesson.
In a short while, you have one wooden
table stripped of it's finish,
and you have an 11yo son with
some woodworking experience.

Begin drawing game boards on the top of the

table in pencil. Be sure to use a ruler and a level.

Our children's favorites are checkers, chess,

and Othello, along with TicTacToe.

Use acrylic paint to fill in the game boards.

Recommendation: Make them colorful.

Finish painting gameboards and allow to dry.

Paint the base of the table with latex paint and allow to dry.

Final step: coat the whole table top with 2 coats

of heavy-duty sealer.

TA DA !!

A game table for 6 Cherubs ....

(just as soon as the sealer dries)

What a great idea for a table. I am a mother of 3 boys and this sounds like such a cool project.

Stop by my site sometime.
