I found this wooden dice game clearanced at Michael’s for $8!! I decided to give the dice a couple coats of polyurethane (I had it on hand) to help preserve the dots. Knowing this would be used outside and knowing that I don’t have any grass in my backyard, I decided I needed to make a box to use for rolling the dice. I figured they wouldn’t last too long rolling them on concrete, lol.
I decided to make the box 2’x4′ so I bought (2) – 1″x4″x6′ boards from Home Depot. Cut 2′ off of them and screwed the boards together to make the box. I had a piece of scrap plywood laying around so I cut it to size.
I laid the frame upside down to fit the plywood. Then I glued and screwed the plywood to the frame. I have a ton of these screws left over from adding my addition.
Just like I say in scrapbooking – save your scraps! I had this piece of outdoor carpet rug stuff leftover from my daughter’s bridal shower (I used it for a backdrop). So I cut it to size and used my staple gun to attach it to the plywood bottom.
A little paint and voila! Can’t wait to use it!
