A few weeks back, I picked up this six-in-one game set at a neighbor’s garage sale.
The woman selling it to me told me at least three times that she thought it would be perfect at the end of a bar. (Did I have a bar? No, I didn’t have a bar. That’s a shame, because it would be perfect at the end of a bar! That’s what she thought to herself when she saw that. PERFECT. At the end of a bar.)
This conversation / interrupted monologue got me thinking that if you did have a bar – or a game table, or even a coffee table – a game set like this would be a perfect place to put some art. As long as you seal your work, the game can still be played. If nobody feels like playing, the game set will still be adding something to your life. Look at all of this winning!
As usual, all you need to make this happen for yourself (in addition to the game set) is sandpaper, gesso, and paint! Just remove the slippery coat of varnish on that baby, and you’re good to go!
