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!

This is charming, and such a creative way to save a game board and parts.
