My kids and in-laws recently had a dinner out at Cracker Barrel and were very interested in playing checkers on the porch outside. Unfortunately there was a suspicious lack of checkers.... When we got home that night I decided to use an old end table and make one for them.
Just a quick tape off of 1 1/2" squares in the center of this end table
chose orange and a dark brown
taping for next squares - the problem with this sort of project is the amount of tape "wasted" in taping things off. If I wasn't
looking for exacting square lines letting my kids help paint on this, I probably would have done it free hand without tape.
2 coats exterior poly, let dry and let the games begin!! They have rocks vs. globs. :)
