Additions to my game wall

For Christmas this year, I made all my friends and myself a Parchessi board and a tic tac toe board. I love all those old game boards.
Last week I was at the thrift store looking for redo-able junk. I found these game boards for 25 cents.

I thought they would work perfect with just a little sanding and antiquing.

Of course a little cutting as well. I love how they look and they aren't huge so they work perfect for where I wanted them.

Also they can come right off the wall to be played if we want. We do love playing games.


  1. You did a fantastic job on your gameboards! I really like them. Thanks for sharing with us.
    Have a great day!

  2. Awesome display Kathy. I am anxious to make some game boards, that is another on my "to do list". It just keeps growing!!
    Love that blanket crane too, did you make it?

  3. Beautiful display!
    I really like a display of game boards just something fun about it!

  4. I am working on a gameboard wall too!!!! I so love your Parcheesie board! It's wonderful!!! You wouldn't happen to need a shoo-fly to trade would you? ;) I love them... but I can never justify what they put on them in the magazines!
