This poor old game finally bit the dust after being used for 5 generations in my family.
Of course I felt I had NO BUSINESS throwing it away.
This was a quick and easy project. It hangs on the outside of my door and I have treated it so that it should last awhile even if it gets rained on through the screen door.

That is so nice. Years ago I made scrabble coasters for a wordy aunt and uncle, this would be such a terrific follow up gift.

Awesome idea for salvaging a Scrabble board and tiles!  I bet there would be a market for signs like those.

I never throw out my game boards when they start to deteriorate either!   Roll Eyes

clever idea! so nice you could reuse a cherished family game board instead of just tossing it out. every time you enter your house you will be reminded of all fantastic words that have been played on it!
