For the longest time, I’ve been wanting to create a chess/checkerboard table for our own family room, so how excited was I to see one of my cousins actually take on this project herself ! I’m lucky to be Stephanie’s cousin by marriage, and I just love how with a little ingenuity, she transformed someone else’s discarded end table into a chess game table with two types of stain and imagination !
The best part is, this was her first DIY project. Bravo Stephanie !
Here is Stephanie’s DIY story:
“I found this table no one wanted next to a dumpster and I thought it would be fun to transform it into a chess/checkerboard table, an idea inspired by a table at my local coffee shop.
The table had a lot of water marks, the finish was peeling, and one panel of the table was uneven. So, a friend and I brought it home and set to work to transform it.
