DI Dare Challenge

What’s a girl to do when your sent board games and you happen to despise board games?

Get creative and up cycle them into something cute for the home!

These are both classic games and most likely to be found on the shelves of your local Deseret Industries.

First up… Scrabble

A little hot glue and an old board and…

Ta Da!  Suddenly I love Scrabble!

These little ledges could be added to frames, chalkboards, walls etc.  Change out the sayings as you wish.

Next up….little vintage frames.


We love to snag up ornate vintage frames!  We loved that these were a matching set and liked the small scale.  Perfect for gallery walls or adding to small areas that need a little something.

Also perfect for a lost and found sock station for the laundry room!

We simply spray painted the frames black, added scrap book paper over the existing art and hot glued little clips to change out those ever elusive lone socks.  The scrabble tiles came in handy again in a frame that we painted, added scrapbook paper to and glued clips for changing out lost socks.

Next up was Backgammon…

The checkers got a little spray paint and some craft paper and became magnets!  The hot glue gun got put to use again and we just  hot glued the magnet to the back.

A perfect spot to add those little reminder notes about what needs line dried.

Thinking outside the box, creativity, a little paint and most assuredly the hot glue gun, can take your thrift store finds from the everyday to something unique and used in a completely new way.

 Thrift on!
