This is a side table that was given to me a couple years ago.  It was light colored wood with little flowers painted in the corner.  Not very pretty, but the perfect height for my couch.  Then the coffee table busted, and this became the replacement.  I decided to do my long awaited idea of turning it into a checkerboard, and since I'm a Super Mario World nut, I made it a themed one.

It was painted with acrylic paint.  It has yet to be sealed, because it's too cold to go out and get sprayed.  At first I decided to do the squares freehand which was a HORRIBLE DECISION and I eventually taped them out.  And I'm kind of a moron so I didn't take a before picture.

This is the coolest checkerboard Ive ever seen! It makes me wish I was a bigger fan of checkers though...

I have to say that this table rocks and I have seen it up close and personal and the picture doesn't do it justice.  It is amazing!!  You did an awesome job on this!!

I can't get over how wonderful this table is.  It's such a clever idea and you did such a wonderful job with the painting.  How are the checker pieces coming?  I would really love to see those.   Grin
