A repurpose from West Elm clearance...

On a recent trip to West Elm they had a clearance
table, everything on it was $2.95.

They had a great old fashioned looking Backgammon game. I don't remember how to play Backgammon from back in my college days, but I sure liked the vintage looking board.  

I removed the center hinges and painted the inside of one side with chalkboard paint. I added trim, a metal handle to the top (that I made myself from a piece of metal), 
and a repurposed wooden shelf. 

I kept the label on the back in tact because it was so great looking.

I stenciled on the word Notes...
