I LOVE vintage style games and have been collecting them for some amazing projects in the future (um....whatever those projects are).
This one isn't so much vintage as just plain cool. I purchased this game about 2 years ago and it has been sitting on my game shelf since then. I could almost hear the game crying out with excitement as I lifted it's battered casing from the top shelf of my daughter's closet. "She's finally gonna play with me," it shouts. Play? Nope, I had something much better in mind. The first thing I needed to do was sort the letters so I could more easily find what I needed.
I laid out my letters, arranging how I wanted them to go and rearranging and coming up with new words and getting a little frustrated cause I couldn't find all the letters I needed.
In the end, I was only short one letter: P. I will admit that I was a bit frustrated for about one, maybe eight, minutes but then had my lightbulb moment. I could take this:
Add a little paint....and get this (paint is still drying, but there is no rest for the weary).
Not bad, right? It looks even better from further away.
Check that out: it's our family rules. I had several "words" in mind and was glad that I could fit most of them on the board. Yea! Now I've got to find the perfect place to display it. That will wait until after Christmas. This project was so super easy but the effect is something I can be proud of. AND, because I used hot glue, I can easily peel off the letters when I'm bored and play another round of scrabble.
