I know this is not a particularly new idea, but I am really happy with the results. Extra large scrabble tiles made from recycled scrap wood. The boards were cut out of old stair treads (9 1/4 by 10") and sanded smooth with the edges slightly rounded.
I painted the letters and values on with black craft paint and sealed with clear coat. I made one for each member of our family and will post another pic after they're installed.
 


Thanks for looking!



Daddy & Daughter doing the installation, making sure no vacant wall space in our home goes unadorned! None, I say!



Done! I ended up painting a moss green retangle for the tile to sit inside. Without it, they just blended into the wall color!

oh my, so cool!!  I'm a scrabble junkie from way back, and I thought the scrabble throw rug was the epitome of cool, but man, this may have surpassed it.

Did any of you see the scrabble-tile foyer floor in ReadyMade magazine? It's so cool. I have been saving up tiles ever since I saw it, just about have enough for one of my own.

The installation looks fantastic!  I have that same "no uncovered wall" issue!

Craftsunderground, NO.. But now I must go find it!!

ETA:  OMG that floor is the best thing ever.  We're planning on finally buying a house next summer, so I have time to stock up!!!

I just looked at that floor and now I am picking my jaw up. As my daughter would say- HOLY MOLY COW! I wish there were more pics- that was such a tease! I can't even wrap my mind around how many scrabble games you would need to even cover the smallest powder room. Really amazing!

This idea is so cool.  Now you only need to make a giant scrabble board!

LOOOOOVE these! The green background worked out perfectly. It really makes the letters pop. I have to say that the actual lettering is suberb. Grea job. BTW, love that buureau under your tv. It's marvelous and it matches your curtains beautifully!
