TURN AN OLD CHECKERBOARD INTO A DECORATIVE STAND.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED
Wooden game board
Square picture frame with glass or Plexiglas,
slightly larger than game board
Side table, slightly smaller than game board Fine-grit sandpaper
Bar clamps or C-clamps
Remove the glass from the picture frame. Lightly sand picture frame and the legs of the table. Wipe surfaces clean.
In a well-ventilated area, spray-paint base of table and picture frame with 2-3 coats of paint, allowing to dry between coats.
Center game board on top of table and adhere with a generous amount of wood glue. Apply firm, even pressure. Gently attach clamps to all four sides to ensure glue adheres evenly and wooden board does not warp.
