play games

Inspired by this

I decided to do this…

in our playroom.

I am not handy with a saw and I don’t think we even have a table saw. So, I just glued a 12″ x 12″ canvas to the back of each game board and hung them up on the wall.

Originally, I used our more current game boards.

Then, after thrifting, I found some “vintage” game boards from the 80’s that I liked better.

So, I took the newer game boards off the canvases and put some thrifted ones back on.

I got the canvases on sale at Michaels…7 canvases for $20…so that’s less than $3 a piece.

The Chutes and Ladders, Candy Land and Life games were all found at Goodwill for $1.99 each.

We had the Scrabble and Monopoly games on hand.

So, for about $20, I added some colorful and playful art to our playroom!

home is…being playful.

    I LOVE this idea! May have to copy it in our playroom. I have a really old classic Candyland board that I want to preserve. I think this would be a great solution.

    What a great idea! I found your post through Pinterest. I’ve loved the idea of hanging the board games in the playroom, but I’m not handy with a saw either… I love the idea of using a canvas. Brilliant!! Thank you for sharing!
