Fun Game Board Table

I’ve been working on smaller projects.

Disclaimer: Today, I have an easy display table for a game board. I understand that some people may not like the content of this post.  A friend of mine requested this custom order.  Perhaps you could use the idea with your favorite game board.

small side tableBack in the Summer I picked up this small table and a Ouija Board (not pictured) at a thrift store.

 

small-thrift-store-tableThe table is very versatile, having two sets of shelves, a magazine rack and 3 small drawers.

 

 

gray-primerThe little table got a quick makeover of some gray primer during one of my Finish Max marathons.

 

fitting-ouija-boardI chose some wide crown molding to frame out the table, making the cuts on my compound miter saw.

 

behr-belugaI sprayed it Beluga Black when I sprayed the t.v. console….it’s so easy to do multiple projects at once.

 

use-Gorilla-GlueI used Gorilla Wood Glue to attach the game board.

 

glue-trimI glued the trim and used my nail gun to secure them.

 

caulk-cornersThere was a small gap which I filled with painter’s caulk, and then touched up the paint.

  1. Can I just tell you how much I love this? I have a vintage Ouija board I decorate with at Halloween, but if I needed a little table…this would be it!

  2. Love how it turned out. :)

  3. I LOVE this idea…it turned out perfectly! Pure genius!

  4. This turned out perfect. It is a great idea with the storage for different games. Love it!!

  5. this is sooooo fun! i need a crystal ball and will be good to go!

  6. OMG, I love this! How clever are you? Seriously, great job.

  7. I love Ouija boards too and this turned out great. Love it!

  8. That is really cool Gail. Wow, have not played with one of them since I was a kid, and lets just say that has been a long time ago!

  9. I LOVE this!

  10. I have 2 end tables much like this one and I would love to do the paint effect minus the game board of course, could you please give step by step instructions from beginning of primer to the end result? I am assuming you sanded the stand first??? joyghoover@aol.com

      I didn’t sand first. I just used the very flat DIY Chalk Paint primer, then the latex on top of it.

  11. I just love that table! What a clever idea that came out beautiful!

  12. I LOVE how the table turned out……but I would NEVER allow a Ouija board in my house, any other game would be fine!!

  13. I have had one of these for about a year now and just haven’t been able to figure out what to do with it…Awesome idea!! Now you’ve got me thinking. (sometimes that take a lot)! :)
    Thanks for the inspiration,
    Denise

    BeAuTiFuL job Gail!!!! I love it!

  19. This is SO cool. I’m super impressed.

  20. Stay the double hockey sticks away from ouija boards…these things are really demonic..they open the door to some very unwanted activity in the home and in the lives of those who mess with them.

    That being said…the table is a nice idea for other, family oriented and ‘safe’ games such as monopoly.

  21. Beautiful,- but since I dont allow an ouija board in my house(bad experience with one as a young adult) it would have to be a Scrabble board!!!
    Awesome concept tho!!

  22. She is going to LOVE this! Let me know what she says.

  23. this table is really the bomb. love it!

  24. So so cool! Love the idea of the Ouija board table. I just purchased an old wood checker/chessboard. Thanks for the inspiration…

  26. Super cute Gail! I can see it as a regular game board as well, such a fun idea!

    • I would have never perdicted it would be that nice. did you use tarot to pick your Color? Ithink this is super cute. I might try it for my daughter; maybe with some gold leaf trim and a protection spell embossed in the magic alphabet. -
