Good Old Fashioned Tic Tac Toe Repurposed
I knew I would be making a trip to my vacation rental on the gulf coast so when I saw this cute tic tac toe I knew I had to give it a new life. One thing families find time for is board games, something to do with being on vacation. I try to keep bringing in new family activities.
Here was the basic black tic tac toe board box and the metallic O’s and X’s that had faded and turned yellow, a couple had to be glued back together.
There was no damage to the actual board game box so I was able to just lightly sand with my sanding block and Smooth out any chips in corners. I wiped it down and let dry before my chalk paint
I was able to do two coats of Annie Sloan light blue chalk paint and had great coverage. Didn’t need a primer and I planned on using a clear coat for durability.
While my blue paint was drying I lightly sanded out any glued areas to smooth and get ready for paint. I used a rustoleum metallic spray paint and got rid of the faded gold letters.
I took a light gray acrylic paint and put dry brush strokes over the top to age and make it beachy before I clear coated. I put the name and webpage address in my Cricut and applied vinyl letters prior to clear coating.
Here is the final redo, it looks like I had it custom made for my vacation rental with personalized writing. I love that it has a new life down south and the guests will get many hours of pleasure.
