TV Tray turned Checker Board Game

When I first came across this TV Tray I wasn't exactly sure what I was going to do with it, but then I came across a wood checker board. It fit so perfectly inside of the tray that I decided to make a fold up game table. I love playing games and at our house we seem to always run into storage issues, so I thought this folding TV Tray would work great for any household. I also decided to come up with a way to keep everything stored together, so I added magnet strips on either side of the game board and made checker pieces out of bottle caps, so when not being used they can be sit on the magnet strips. This game table measures 21"wide x 15"deep x 25" tall and I am selling it for $79. Below are some before and after photos...

Sorry, I don't know why it is downloading sideways, but here I painted and distressed the tray and added the magnet strips...

I distressed some paper and used Mod Podge to glue it to the tray and it hides the magnet strip pretty well.

I painted and distressed the checker board, layered it with Mod Podge for durability, and glued it to the tray. I also painted bottle caps, added a paper insert, and coated them with Mod Podge for durability.

Here is what it looks like finished and folded up!
