Heading on a road trip this summer? Or just love kicking it in the park with a couple of classic board games? If traveling light is not top of mind and you’d rather play a full-size board game than those miniature magnetic ones, follow our tutorial for how to turn lovely wooden checkers and chess sets into full-size travel games. The trick? VELCRO® Brand Sticky Back White Dots, of course!
– wood chess set
– wood checkers set
– black spray paint
– dark brown spray paint
– cream spray paint
– VELCRO® Brand Sticky Back White Coins
If you choose a more colourful game, simply choose spray paint that matches all the tiles or squares in your game. We wanted a more rustic picnic-while-playing-board-games vibe, so we went with all wood.
EASY ON-THE-GO CHESS OR CHECKERS SET
1. Spray paint your VELCRO® Brand Sticky Back White Dots in colours that match your boards. For darker shades, you’ll probably need two coats. Let dry for 30 minutes.
