chess set-possibly make one using real stumps---wow! I have a woodburning set---checkers!!! lol!
Homemade headboard: plywood, upolstery foam, pipe insulation, fabric & a staple gun! Spent about $30. Better instructions: Cut plywood to desired shape. Cut foam and glue to plywood. Wrap fabric around and staple edges on back of plywood. Cut pipe insulation to fit 3 visible edges. Wrap trim fabric around pipe insulation and staple to headboard. (That last part gets tricky and takes a minute) Good luck :)
