    Large Outdoor Scrabble Board Game... 30 DIY Ideas How To Make Your Backyard Wonderful This Summer

  • Lara Gould

    How fun! Outdoor scrabble "I like areas of double use," says Sacramento architect Kristy McAuliffe, and her 5-foot square Scrabble board rates at least a double-word score on the scale of inventive garden games. With the help of friend Keith Rogers, McAuliffe made a wood frame, then poured concrete and scored it into 3¾-inch squares separated by ¼-inch joints. After the concrete had cured for one month, she colored the squares using water-base concrete stains. McAuliffe then made 100 3¼-inch square letter tiles from baseboard trim. She found precut, adhesive-backed vinyl letters and numbers at a sign shop, stuck them on the tiles, and sealed each one with spray lacquer. The lightweight letters, which are stored in a canvas bag, fit on metal trays made by McAuliffe's friend, metal artist Crystal Weber. Games go late on summer evenings. "You get better words playing outside," McAuliffe says.

It would be great to not only have a mountain view in my Boulder Bohemian home but about a half acre of land too. I'd have a garden and this old wagon as a sitting area.

If you go to this blog, it has a link where you can buy these unfinished frames for cheap. I want two big ones like the ones in this picture. I also want a variety of smaller ones. I want to paint them for the wall behind my couch! Great christmas gift for me! :)

Love this idea more than just normal letter magnets. But, I want them extra large size... have to get squares of wood and paint the lettering on myself.
