So, when I was home for spring break, I bought this super old scrabble game at Goodwill with the intentions of taking it back to school and using the letters to spell stuff on my walls. Well, I left it here and just now found it a few months later. Any idea what I could do with it?

wow I've seen a ton of stuff done with scrabble boards on here.. tables, bulletin boards, journals. Think of anything that's hard and make one out of your scrabble board Smiley

I don't seem to be the same today as I was yesterday.

The first thing I thought of was magnets. Just buy some magnetic strips and cut them to size, get yourself some good sturdy glue, and go go go.  You could buy a magnetic bullitin board (This one is $20, but I'm sure you can find one at Target or Wal-Mart cheaper) and then you can spell out whatever kind of message you feel like at the moment and it'll be easy to change later!

Here is a link to magnetic paint if you want to magnetize a Scrabble board, wall, or whathave you.  I don't know what color it turns out to be - maybe it'll make the Scrabble board gray? Undecided If you do this I'd test it somewhere first to see the color.

Or here is a link to another craftster.org project where they used the board as a regular bullitin board and put tacks on the back of the letters to make them stick to it.

Give it to me.  Smiley

I've been keeping my eye on the local thrift stores for months, and have not found hide nor hair of a Scrabble game.  I want to turn the pieces into jewelry myself- Dremel them and make bracelets (which will first require a Dremel), force an eye-screw into the top and hang it on a chain as an initial, or spell things out- but my own set is sacred and oft employed in (gasp) Scrabble games.

Magnets(http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=7943.0), push pins (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=5128.msg39135#msg39135), cufflinks (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=1014.0), books (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=6128.0), mosaics (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=3208.0), etc.  The search feature is lovely.  Smiley

i think you can buy extra scrabble tiles from the company, presumably if you lose them or something. have you tried ebay too?

An old Budget Living took the board and made it into a little display shelf.
