Old end table that needed some TLC.
Two coats of black paint and 15 Scrabble games turns this into a great table for a game room—or any room!

I found this end table at a garage sale for $3. It had just enough of a rim that looked to be the depth of a Scrabble tile. I brought it home, sanded it down, and put two coats of black gloss paint on it. It took 15 Scrabble games to tile the table. I pick up Scrabble games whenever I see them at garage sales (don't we all!), so I have more than enough to tile the table. This will make a great table for a game room—or any room!

Game room, office, library. Great for any room!

Nice going!
