Game Board Wall

I've often said I love Games- Game boards, pieces, dice, fake money, etc, etc. When you love something and you can buy it for .50-1.00 you tend to have a lot of it. This is the case with games. A few years ago I decided to display the kids game boards on the wall in their toy room. It's taken me that long to finish it up by filling in blank spots with vinyl lettering. Here's an overall picture of the game board wall.
It was difficult to get the games to fit precisely in the space so this week I finally filled in the spaces with vinyl quotes.

We wanted the game boards to be functional so we attached them to the wall using grommets and hooks. When friends come over they can see what games we have to play and then easily remove them from the wall. To give an even border, I just cut up the lids to the games and stapled those on the wall.

All the pieces are neatly stored in the window seat in clear containers. This makes clean-up fast
A few games are stored in larger boxes.
Like I said, this has been up for a few years and has stood the test of time. I enjoy the graphic element of game boards and the kids seem to play with things more when not hidden in a closet. Hope you enjoyed. Love, Kelly

  5. Kelly, my clever, clever friend. How I wish I had your energy, creativity. I have thrown away so many games over the years because my kids just cannot keep them contained. Thanks for the idea--heading to Walmart for tubs today!

  7. That is very cool. I love that you can still use them, and it serves as art as well.

  8. This is such a great idea. I think it's a neat way to get games that maybe get pushed to the back of the closet played more too. I have enjoyed reading your blog and became a new follower!

  9. That idea is so fun! It says , "Come in and play. This room is about family and friends enjoying time together." Isn't it great when your walls say something that nice? I also love the fabric on your pillows. I have that in my family room.

  10. SO Fun! I love games, and this is just so inviting! What a great idea!

    Thanks for joining our party I hope you come back again soon!

  11. I love this! We have been talking about doing a game wall but have not figured out exactly how it would look. We have a ginormous stack of games in the laundry room and some bare walls in the family room. Hmm...I wonder if that will change this weekend. :)
