I subscribe to so many online newsletters, some of which aren't even about antiques. But sometimes world's collide.
The fun photography site, PHOTOJOJO did a piece on creatively re-purposing vintage game boards into Picture Frames -- too cute.
We've all found many a vintage game in not-so-great condition -- missing pieces, raggedy or no box -- sometimes just the board.
Here's a really great idea for using the surviving boards -- turn them into truly unique PICTURE FRAMES!
You can even glue the tokens, cards, and other game parts & pieces to the boards/frames.
To quote PJJ, " Whip out the old X-acto knife and transform that subpar board into a superlative piece of wall candy. "
Check out their site -- they''ll show you how to do it.
You can find game boards all over -- garage sales, antique malls, and, of course, eBay --

Here's the cool ebay search widget showing only items with " Vintage Game Board " in title:
