6 DIY Makeovers for Old Games

What do you do when your old board games expire? It’s hard to part with them—even if they’re beat-up and missing pieces and you only play games on your phone these days. Well, here are some smart ways to repurpose them around the house. What I especially love: You’re decluttering a closet from stuff you don’t use any more AND giving your home some personality, too. Win-win!

  • Board game gallery wall
  • Scrabble coasters
  • Playing card journals
  • Puzzle wall art
  • Monopoly trinket box
  • Board game picture frame
  • Turn vintage game boards into a gallery wall, like Stacy from NiftyLiving.
  • Glue Scrabble pieces into coasters, like Nicole of VisualHeart.
  • Transform playing cards into covers for mini journals, like Diane of CraftyPod.
  • Paint puzzle pieces and rearrange them as wall art, like Miriam of BabyEcoChic.
  • Decoupage Monopoly cards and money to a box, like Kim at Yessy.
  • Glue game pieces to a picture frame (cute gift for a kid!), like Carrie of MakingLemonade.

When you're walking home from work on a beautiful fall evening and you think, "A delicious cappuccino would make my life complete right now." Then you realize it's 5:00 and you're too old for that shit.

You know what's awesome? When you're super-excited to meet someone and she turns out to be just as smart and sweet and chic as you hoped she'd be. That's Danai Gurira, whom you might know as Michonne on The Walking Dead! Tune into @abcthechew tomorrow to see us have some fun in the kitchen! #twd #thechew #fanboy
