i made this table from an old monopoly junior board game. i got the idea from a magazine a couple of years ago. its not too hard to make if you're good with tools and stuff. i used pre-made table legs that you can buy at home-depot which made it easier. the fringe was from walmart! i hope you like the idea! comments please!

very cool.  I saw this same project in a magazine or book somewhere too.
I'm guessing that you backed the gameboard with something sturdy, maybe plywood?
I was actually thinking of doing something similar as an end table but I was a little
concerned about spilling stuff on the surface of the gameboard.  did you seal your's
with anything?

=)  That is really cute.   I was at Dollar Tree today & they had Puzzle sealer, I wonder if that would work?

You totally pass go and collect $200...no seriously, as an avid fan of reusing gameboards for home decor I have to tell you - this project rocks!   Great idea.

That would be so cute in a child's room! It serves two purposes--have fun, and extra storage space!
