Checkers anyone?

Everyone knows how to play checkers, right?  We needed a game table for our new screened in porch so I decided that checkers would be great.  I was going to paint a checkerboard on a round table top that I had but when I was shopping this weekend I saw the perfect checker board.  I spotted it from the road.  It was only $2.00.  SCORE! 

No need to take the time to paint one.  I just got out my trusty liquid nails and an old table base that my friend Jen,  from over at creating with the J's donated to me, and I went to town.   

What do you think?  Hubby and I played our first game the other night and I decided that I suck stink at checkers too!  We had fun, even if I didn't win.

$2.00 checkerboad + free table base = FUN, FUN, FUN
